Tenants: The People on the Frontline of Housing Emergency

Tenants: The People on the Frontline of Britain's Housing EmergencyTenants: The People on the Frontline of Britain’s Housing Emergency by Vicky Spratt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a really solid analysis of what went so wrong with Britain’s (especially England’s) housing policy. Spratt manages to link economic data and theory with the real stories of people who have been left in vulnerable housing situations with little recourse. She also makes reference to changes that have taken place in Wales and Scotland that have helped improve the situation on both these countries.

It’s also disturbing to read about the point at which local authorities are complicit in providing substandard accommodation and how harassed officials trying to cope as best they can with a system not fit for purpose, come over as negative and can have detrimental effects to peoples lives.
