Town halls are referring would-be squatters to a far-Left group selling a £2 DIY guide on how to break into and occupy empty homes.I wonder which councils...?
The squatters' handbook advises them to force entry through back entrances or open windows, carry a crowbar and claim they are 'clearing the drains' if stopped.
The housing departments of councils such as Durham and Doncaster as well as Hackney, Islington, Brent, Camden and Hounslow in London, refer those who do not have a house to the Advisory Service for Squatters via their websites. The Home Office also consults the organisation on its equality policies.Pretty much the ones I'd have guessed then!
I wonder if a homeowner would have a legal case against a council if it could be proved that squatters were directed to the property by them?
