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.

I want to call a halt to this destructive campaign to dismantle the welfare state that the UK inherited from the hard work of previous generations. We do not want to return to living in a nasty brutish society, where only the rich are allowed to thrive.

house prices raising to unaffordable levels, deposits that are unobtainable and private landlords offering at the most 12 months tenancies with no security of it being renewed. Leaves council housing the only affordable and secure option for many skilled and key works. selling housing stock will only drive the housing crisis further

We need Social Housing, no selling off of properties and tenants need security. Social rents are not subsidised and are not some kind of charity deal for the less well off.

Everyone should have the right to a secure home and council houses are a way to ensure this.

I am an Islington home owner (without a mortgage) and so have no personal interest in this matter other than a deep sense of injustice. In particular, given the very grave lack of truly affordable rented housing in London for people on low pay, it is outrageous to make councils sell off council homes.

If the Tories ban lifetime tenancies, I put forward a request to charge home owners a bedroom tax for all unoccupied bedrooms, to equalise with the shameful persecution of council tenants who have more than one bedroom, and are charged a bedroom tax.
