  1. Bloke in the Fourth Reich in 'ampshire

    Why not just pass a law forcing landlords not to allow their property to fall into a state of disrepair?

    Surely it is a human right to have someone else pay for the upkeep of the house you live in?

  2. IIRC there is such a law in England which is occasionally enforced upon private sector landlords – but not on “Social housing” providers, such as Rochdale Boroughwide Housing.

  3. I should like to point out that the definition in your link gets “arse over tit” confusing a common but not universal method of provision with the purpose.
    The purposeof “social housing” is to provide *decent accommodation for their circumstances (including number of children and/or any physical handicaps of any members of the household)* for households at a rent that they can afford for those unable to do so in the open market {almost always due to the shortage of private sector rental accommodation due to previosgovernment action, such as Lloyd George’s rent freeze}
