Sell-offs of social housing 14th and 19th Feb – protest if you can!

A report from the Chartered Institute of Housing earlier this month showed that 165,000 social homes have been lost since 2012. This includes nearly 50,000 Housing Association homes. It predicts that loss of social housing will reach 199,000 by 2020. This makes it increasingly difficult for people on lower incomes to access a decent home at a price they can afford.

This issue affects everybody who cares about the housing crisis, not just Housing Association residents. Here is the latest on the sell-off of social housing around the country.

At the first auction, run by Allsop – Thursday 14 February, 9:00 AM, Intercontinental London Park Lane, One Hamilton Place, London W1J 7QY –
a total of 44 Housing Association homes are up for sale.
At the second auction, run by Savills – Tuesday 19 February, 10:00 AM, Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London W1K 6JP – a further 18 Housing Association homes go under the hammer in Mayfair.
There is a third online auction selling a further 37 Housing Association homes. Homes for sale are in Westminster, Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth, Lewisham, Haringey, Camden, Barnet, Croydon and East Sussex.
