Northampton Council Pays £132,000 for property it sold for peanuts

Northampton Council Pays £132,000 for property it sold for peanuts

The shambles of Right to buy

One property shows how Northampton Borough Council operates

They flog off the property to the tenant on the cheap at a discount (i.e. via Right to Buy)

The property in question has a large garden so the buyer builds a new home on half the garden, then in 2016 the property (got on the cheap) is sold back to NBC for £132,000 minus half the garden.

My current understanding is that the property as been purchased by NBC and NPH with intention to knock it down

Be very interested to know how the great and good square that as value for money

Norman Adams – Northampton – January 2018

Council housing reduced to a mere ambulance service?

Council housing reduced to a mere ambulance service?

As others have pointed out Council housing could eventually be reduced to a mere ambulance service, as it is in the US and Canada, rescuing people in desperate need, putting them in flats that no one wants to buy and quickly moving them on to the private rented sector .

Northampton…

In August 65 council properties were used as temporary accommodation

Seems that on the 18th September Cllr Hibbert was a little evasive on the issue of housing officer numbers at NPH.
