An empty one-bed Westminster Council flat on Lisson Grove, Marylebone is to be sold off at auction rather than let to a person in housing need.
The basement flat is at 123a Lisson Grove and will be sold on 12thFebruary at a price of £240,000.
We have asked the Council if more empty flats are to be sold by auction at the same time – we suspect there are more being sold having looked through the details from the auction prospectus.
In 2019, Westminster Council sold 37 Council flats at auction.
There are currently over 2,500 Westminster families in temporary accommodation
