Steve's Blog May 2015

As I write this blog the general election is less than a week away. For the first time in a long time the subject of Housing has emerged as a key election issue. This ranges from concerns about the ability to afford a home of your home, the bedroom tax, increasing the supply of new housing, through to a proposal to extend the right to buy to housing association tenants.

It is difficult to predict the outcome of the election, although everyone is predicting that no one party will have overall control. A number of commentators are also predicting a coalition of more than 2 parties. If this comes to pass then we will be entering a new political landscape for the UK. This will no doubt bring a period of uncertainty.
