Property Grab For Homeless

Recommended Posts

Guest consa

EMPTY private houses are being seized by the city council to ease a homeless crisis, it was revealed today.

The property grab started this week when two expensive £250,000-plus properties in Moseley and Woodgate Valley, which have been vacant for ten years, were snatched.

"And there are a lot more like that," said Cabinet housing chief John Lines whose officials have compiled a list of 15,000 empty privately-owned properties across the city.

"Many have had nobody living in them for years. It is not only a considerable waste of resources which could

be used to provide affordable housing. But in many cases these empty homes are also an eyesore and associated with anti-social behaviour, crime, and rubbish dumping."
