Make homes shared spaces

Posted on 11-09-19 by test Number of votes: 0 | Number of comments: 0

A lot of people are made homeless because they're dependents in a family and get into family disputes with the home owner. They could be relatives or children of the owner. If the owner tells them to leave and become homeless, they don't have a choice

 

It can also lead to situations where the home owner can force the people living there to do what they want, because if they don't obey, they'll be made homeless or have their things thrown in a bin

 

Labour should make a policy to prevent that, by saying that homes are shared spaces for everyone living there, and everyone in a home has a right to stay there, especially if they've been living there for a long time or would be put into distress or hardship if they had to leave, like being made homeless or receiving home moving costs they can't afford

 

And if someone has permission from a home owner to live there, they should be allowed to stay there indefinitely even if the owner passes away and the new owner wants everyone to leave
