From The Socialist newspaper, 26 April 2017

What we saw

£350,000 for a caretaker's storeroom?

£350,000 for a caretaker's storeroom?   (Click to enlarge)

Looking for an affordable home in east London? How about a caretaker's storeroom round the back of a poorhouse for £350,000?

Infamous estate agents Foxtons apparently listed the glorified shed as a "studio" flat.

There has been a slight dip in both house prices and new private rental rates at the start of 2017. But this will not make up for years of speculation-driven shortages, and Tory and Blairite sell-offs of council homes.
