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.

This tax is going to affect everyone who earns above minimum wage and where there are two or more wage-earners in a residence. Awful. And the forced selling of scarce resources as public housing ? Where’s new ‘affordable’ housing supposed to come from ?

Council tenants already pay rent, Council Tax and income tax. Why do they need to pay more tax?

These policies are reducing our housing stock which is not being replaced at sufficient levels. People need a secure and affordable home to live decent lives
