This boarded-up house at 1 Shepherd’s Bush Road was sold last week at auction for £1.935 million (against a guide price of £925,000).
It was owned by a housing association and will now undergo complete modernisation to produce attractive, comfortable and energy-efficient dwellings.
So a housing association have freed themselves from a costly liability and have nearly £2 million to invest in new housing.
It is win/win/win for every stakeholder, taxpayer and resident of the borough.
Why the Labour-run Hammersmith and Fulham Council has set its face against void sales like this is incomprehensible and frustrating.
