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.

Most working tenants can just about afford to pay full rent let alone now having to be punished for working. Does the Tories want to encourage people to work or live on benefits??? Or are they expecting to put more families out on the streets? The Tories are proving they are a party who does not care about families with children, who will be suffering yet again when they have most recently had the benefits cap.

The lack of social/affordable housing is making London unliveable for large sections of the population.

We need to introduce a land tax and a specific tax on foreign owned/empty property.
