I thought the same when I read it. Surely some form of vetting will be in place, but then...

Reading the comments on there, apparently it's 'social housing' now. No such thing as 'counci houses' and I've seen the way they can go from the ones built in Birmingham. My experience as Property Manager for buy to let housing in Brum tells me it will be foreign nationals on Housing Benefit!

I resigned from my job working for a Buy to Let specialist bank because I had enough of working for a company that made all its profit from Housing Benefit 'tenants'. Almost QUANGO. Same as the Pub Management company I worked for. Made worse by the properties I was managing were all in receivership as Slumlord had defaulted on his by to let.

Sounds like these will be avaialable to buy eventually on Right to Buy. Mixed opinion about that.
