Our Homes Not For Sale

Our Homes Not for Sale

All people deserve to feel secure in their homes.

The Tory Government wants to end the security Council tenants currently enjoy and to sell off council homes.

The Tories’ new law will:

  • Ban new lifetime tenancies, ending the security that Islington Council tenants are currently offered.
  • Force the Council to sell hundreds of homes each year, making it even harder for local people to find an affordable home in Islington.

We, the undersigned, call for the Tory Government to stop the planned ban on lifetime tenancies and the forced sale of council homes.

The attack on social housing by the Tories and previous Labour governments is short sighted and cruel. Short sighted because poor housing causes health problems and means adults and children cannot reach their potential. Cruel because lack of a secure home causes real human suffering.

A secure tenancy gives people the opportunity to put down roots; they should not have to fear their tenancy will be terminated and they will lose their home if their circumstances improve.
