"Arch agents of social cleansing and government advisors Savills are auctioning-off desperately needed social housing. With record homelessness, over 300,000 Londoners languishing on housing waiting lists and many more condemned to over-priced, under-regulated private renting, the city needs every genuinely affordable rented home it has.
At a recent Savills’ auction over 80% of the properties sold were social housing stock.
It's a scandal that Savills are holding an auction to sell-off scores of such homes. It's an additional scandal that, in many cases, they are acting on behalf of housing associations, so called "social landlords"."
