Homes Before Profit

Homes Before Profit

Ensure the following:
1) That all 'non-secure' tenants be granted 'secure or flexible' tenancies
2) The right for all members of the community (irrespective of type of tenure) to remain and be rehoused on the W.Hendon estate
3) A Freedom of Information Request to see a copy of the developers Viability Report that clearly documents their need to lower the % of social housing on the estate
4) That IF the viability report proves that it is not viable to maintain the current level of social housing on the new development that any member of the community that must leave the estate be housed as close to their support networks in W.Hendon as possible AND be given a 'secure tenancy'.

Why is this important?

Our West Hendon are a group of concerned residents on the West Hendon Estate that believe that the developments taking place benefit private developers at the expense of our community. We fear the development is going to force many people from our community out of the estate and possibly out of London. We are therefore making the following demands of Barnet Council, Barnet Homes, Barratt and Metropolitan Housing Association.

Reasons for signing

  • Yes, & let all the land & property taxes: 1 be charged to the owner/landlord 2 be most of the land element of the rent (the remainder the building element, does not depend on the site value of the area=similar as cheapest areas, cover the building costs & maintenance charges) perceivable by the owners 3 Only the HB part net of the taxes [email protected] from HB paid 2 owner, should count toward any benefit cap of the tenant.
  • My support .
  • It is cruel to leave residents, especially elderly people, not knowing what is going to happen to their home & to force them to sell at prices below the cost of the equivalent new properties. Obviously the elderly cannot borrow money nor should. At the twilight of their lives they just want to be left alone with their memories. At the very least, some of the huge profits being made in these regenerations should be used to give a straight swop ''old homes for new''.
