Green Party – the housing policy

Housing-Policy-Briefing

SUMMARY

There are 1.8 million people on waiting lists for social housing.1

Cutting spending on building homes has left far too many people struggling and fails to address

the underlying causes of the housing crisis.

We will build 500,000 new social rented homes by 2020.

We will pay for this by reforming landlord tax allowances to incentivise good practice rather than

profit, starting with scrapping the mortgage interest tax allowance.

Building new homes is not the only answer. We will also bring empty homes back into use, end

the right to buy, provide better support for tenants in privately rented accommodation and take

action on soaring rents.
