No Wonder There Is A Shortage Of Council Housing.

Recommended Posts

LeicesterSq might like this as he has said council housing should be sold off to the highest bidder.

181-189 Gertrude Rd, NR3, from £170k

I'm sure in time that these flats will be replaced by four Housing Association flats for rent nearby...at a cost of 1.5 times the cost of the rent of these former flats. :rolleyes:

And possibly not as solid as those ones.Also in regional subforum here with details of a few other houses sold off too:

The Great Norwich City Council House sell off

Well it is a shame that they are restricting the sell off to homes that are empty, but it has to be welcomed.

Pity about the Housing Association though, more taxpayers money helping those who run the housing association live the high life, and giving a big disincentive to work for those it provides housing too.

If (yes I know it is a big if) government brought public sector pay down to below private sector pay levels, stopped paying for the EU, stopped all benefits and let people sort themselves out, the real value of wages, even at the bottom level, would allow people to house themselves. People who dont work would be forced into it, and people who do non jobs, like housing association directors, would have to produce something. That would produce some much needed growth, allowing us to haul ourselves up by the bootstraps. Self reliance.

Instead we are all dragging each other down as we seek handouts and help from others.

Having applied for a few low level jobs at Housing Associations (and not even getting so much as an interview), it always amazed me how ligh the salaries are for mor senior roles advertised alongside them. Excellent perks as well! No wonder their Shared Ownership schemes are criticised for being too expensive in real terms. :rolleyes:

SOLD for £216,500 (£54,125 per flat).

Lot 25

It also seems like the house next door has gone on the market too. :unsure:

GP £120-130k

Getting back on topic it seems like the first 3 lots in this auction were former council houses too.
