Butterfields Won't Budge
Following this campaign, a housing association called 'Dolphin Living' has come to the rescue of tenants at the Butterfields Estate in Walthamstow and bought 49 homes.
Dolphin Living said: "Whilst our focus remains on bringing homes to market for those who live or work in the City of Westminster, we have taken the decision to invest in the Butterfields Estate at open market value.
“This means that there will be no further evictions of tenants for at least the next 5 years, coupled with our commitment to ensure that no unrealistic rental increases are activated during this period – capped at 5% per annum.”
