Sanford Housing Co-operative
We have beautiful ponds, gardens and a friendly atmosphere, a tropical communal oasis in London with a famous colourful peace movement mural. Many performers and artists live here and we have tried to artistically redesign our living space. Founded in 1973 it was built using private finance supplied by the Housing Corporation and Commercial Union. Sanford Housing Co-op consists of 133 units of shared accommodation in 14 purpose-built houses. Its rents are not set by any outside body but are designed to cover actual costs. All the tenants as members of the Co-operative are collectively landlords and responsible for helping the Co-op to protect their interests and to save the Co-op money by their voluntary work. Sanford actively seeks applicants from all sections of the community, over the age of 18, who wish to live in a Co-operative, regardless of gender, ethnic origin, disability, sexual orientation or health status. Sanford is a single person co-operative and is not suitable for applicants who have dependent children or who wish to live as a couple.
