It’s the second time up to now 12 months that Sadiq Khan’s Houses for Londoners search device has marketed properties which were discovered to be unsafe.
Liberal Democrat London Meeting Member Hina Bokhari raised the difficulty in July final 12 months after three properties have been listed on the Metropolis Corridor housing portal regardless of containing harmful cladding.
Following Meeting Member Bokhari’s intervention, Sadiq Khan confirmed that the properties had been eliminated and that he had instructed Metropolis Corridor officers to “undertake a assessment of how properties are listed on the Houses for Londoners portal” in order that it doesn’t occur once more.
However this week, Ms Bokhari mentioned “as soon as once more” a property had been listed on the portal regardless of it containing “critical hearth security defects”.
She mentioned: “I’m extremely involved that, as soon as once more, it appears a minimum of one property with harmful cladding and critical hearth security defects has been listed on this web site.
“I’m particularly involved and pissed off given the assurances I used to be supplied with by the mayor in August 2021. This example is solely not adequate and Londoners want assurances that no extra harmful properties will probably be listed on mayor’s Houses for Londoners portal.”
Metropolis Corridor has been supplied with the small print of the property in query in order that these affected may be safeguarded.
The Mayor of London has been approached for remark.
