    In a mjaor speech in Blackpool, Lancashire today, the Prime Minister has announced 2.5 million tenants renting their homes from housing associations will be given the right to buy them outright.

    Industry reaction was not convinced.

    Director of Benham and Reeves, Marc von Grundherr, commented:

    “We’ve seen how previous initiatives allowing social tenants to purchase their properties has backfired, as it causes a significant shortage of stock for those most desperately in need of help, while also driving up property values in the process.

    Of course, this time around it will be different, as they pledge to replace these purchased properties on a one for one basis. Unfortunately, if you believe that, you may also believe that the drunken shenanigans that took place at Downing Street during the pandemic really were innocent, work related events.

    The Government’s record of delivering new homes is woeful at best and social housing has long been an area of serious neglect. To allow them to auction off existing housing association stock while also failing miserably to replace it would be a big mistake indeed.”

    James Forrester, Managing Director of Barrows and Forrester, commented:

    “Boris Johnson claims of a significant increase in the number of homes being built, but this simply isn’t true, which will come as little surprise given the fact that he’s lied to the British public time and time again.

    In fact, the level of new homes reaching the market each year has fallen by fourteen percent and so once again, Boris’s bumblings couldn’t be further from the reality.

    What’s more, promises to utilise Britain's brownfield land is nothing more than a weary piece of recycled rhetoric, spouted on numerous occasions to create the illusion of tackling the housing crisis, but without actually following through with it.”

    They've proposed this before and it was a non-starter.

    Why would anyone believe anything Boris says?

    All he is interested in is saving his position as PM.
