Neighbours Welcome Squatters

Quote from readers comments in today’s Evening Standard “Well done the squatters for taking advantage of this obvious opportunity to show the gulf between the have and have-nots, for eloquently highlighting the plight of the homeless and the scandal of empty, useable homes. I truly hope this brings about legislation that allows councils to use empty houses, wherever they are, whatever they are worth, for the greater good.”

  2. Many thanks XD00 and well done on getting such detailed information. Over the last year we have seen less property speculation on empty properties, and more reposessions. But many property experts think the market is bottoming out. This could be the sign the speculation starts coming back. This week a complete wreck in London attracted over 100 potential bidders and sold at 3x the reserve price at auction.
