Celeb landlord evicts needy tenants for huge property deal

The revelation comes just weeks after Harry, 71, was pictured handing the jam roly-poly puddings that he raved about on I’m A Celebrity to rough sleepers.

One tenant Joanne White, 50, said: “We’ve sent Harry letters, and not heard anything back. All we want to know is if he’s actually aware of what this is going to do to us.”

Another, Edward Hyde, 50, added: “We just don’t want to be made ­homeless. This isn’t a vendetta. It’s not about us against him. He’s got every right to do what he wants to do.”

Wendy and husband Gerry have run the Belgravia as homes for vulnerable people with no deposits, references or guarantors since 1988.

Their tenants pay just £100 a week including bills. Similar accommodation nearby costs more than double – and local homeless services are believed to be full.

In 2016, Pierfront Developments – with former West Ham and Spurs manager Redknapp and his wife Sandra as directors – bought the property from the owner for £1.25million.

Tricky. 

The residents know he is within his rights. If someone offers up a home to look after people (I appreciate he bought it with them in already) and is then expected never to retract it....then even less would offer up homes. It’s like donating to charity then being chased every week for the same donation. 

HOWEVER, Harry shouldn’t have made a separate publicity stunt with homeless people before he was about to serve notice. Particularly after winning £500k in a tv show.

The tenants seem to be crying out for help rather than to stay or for charity....it’s a shame the council granting planning permission are not already engaged and supporting. I guess that involves money and that involves taxes....and the public wouldn’t want that.
