    Background: Twelve families under notice to quit a block of flats in Willesden, London, found and answer to their problem - they got together, formed and association - and bought the place.

    It cost them GBP8,700 pounds. They decided it was worth it for a place of their own.

    Trouble started with the introduction of new Rent Acts in England. Under them the families could have been evicted.

    Now the tenants become the landlords.
