Repeal the Housing Act 1988

1 Comment 1st July 2010

To abolish Schedule II of the Housing Act of 1988 where a court is required by virtue of the mandatory nature of schedule II to order possession of a property in favour of a landlord seeking possession with the aim to evict and permanently displace the tenant irrespective whether the tenant is disabled or vulneralbe.

To abolish the social housing regime and  close down registered social landlords as they are an impediment to the progress of 5 million people in England and Wales held hostage in social housing and preemptively arrested in development.

To abolish the 'one' and 'only' / principle home policy so to enable social housing tenants to live in and/or own several properties if they so wish to do so.

Why does this matter?

The idea is important because Schedule II of the Housing Act 1988 is in conflict with and a violation of s.22 (3) (c) of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.

To liberate 5 million people in England and Wales who are social housing tenants trapped within a social housing regime that stops short of an open prison.

To give a new meaning to the word "security of tenure".

To create equality of arms and a level playing field as between landlord and tenant.

To close down Housing associations and registered social landlords as they are Britain's silent industry which is based on the usurpation, abuse and exploitation of peoples perceived as 'vulnerable' and/or 'disadvantaged'. In that respect it is fair to say that Britain abuses vulnerable people by forcing them to languish in properties unfit for human habitation and/or subject them to compulsory forced displacement found in the nature of the order of possession in reliance on Schedule II of the Housing Act 1988.
