Interesting ...  https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/homeandproperty/hartlepool-house-prices-increased-more-than-north-east-average-in-april/ar-AAYKJXl?ocid=msedgdhp&pc=U531&cvid=0d13ad332779437abbec09b016dcd619

As long as there is housing shortage prices will continue to rise, the government said we need to build 300000 a year which won?t happen. First and foremost the major players in the building industry don?t want to flood the market with new houses which could see a drop in the prices. Secondly we don?t have enough of the labour enquired to build them.

   House values and rents will continue to rise because of the shortage caused by the huge influx of foreign nationals thanks to EU regulations and Tony Blair.

I wish you would check your facts, Thatcher sold the Council houses of never to be replaced.The primary cause of the housing crisis is the lack of new houses being built. Since the 1980s, when council houses were sold in their millions, public bodies have, partly through policy and partly owing to a lack of funding, all but abandoned large scale housing construction projects.

The latest UK Government data shows that over 216,000 homes in England have been empty for over six months. In total, over 600,000 homes are currently vacant in England, more than the UK Government's housebuilding target of 300,000 per year.

Hartlepool built swathes of council estates, Owton Manner, Rift House and Clavering unfortunately those days will never return.

   Yes its a shame the 1997-2010 Labour government didn't bother building any new council houses and also a shame they didn't block the sale of council houses.

   Your figures are completely misleading, there are many uninhabitable houses across the country and a lot more which are currently empty [for sale].

Why bring the Labour Party into the conversation, I was stating facts.
Misleading possibly but not by much.

Did Hartlepool not have a Labour controlled council and a Labour MP when it was decided to pass on all of its council housing stock to a housing association. Whatever the reasons were for this decision it still happened on Labours watch.

The reason they sold them of was because the organisation who bought them qualified for government grants for improvements to them, quite by coincidence some of the staff went with them on greatly enhanced salaries I believe.

So you need to modify your statement to say that Thatcher and the Hartlepool Labour Council sold off the council houses never to be replaced.

There seems to be a few familiar interesting names on the directors list of Housing Hartlepool

Thatcher sold the council houses of to individuals, the Council sold what was left to Housing Hartlepool a company who rent them out.
