Housing Bill demo 2016Housing Bill demo 2016 v.2

The Housing Bill is a major threat to the right of unemployed and low-waged people to stay living in London. Among its main proposals are:

  1. Enabling Housing Associations to sell off their homes, similar to the Councils Right To Buy schemes
  2. Introducing ‘Pay To Stay’ schemes that could force families in council flats with an overall income of £40,000 in London (£30,000 everywhere else) to pay the market rent
  3. Changing secure council tenancies to fixed contracts of 2-5 years, after which they could be evicted
