A home worth £1.2m that was being raffled off for just £5 per ticket has been withdrawn after concerns from the local council. Owner Renu Qadri was aiming to raise £3.75m through the online raffle for her home in south east London’s Blackheath. A spokesman for Greenwich Council said the listing may have breached Gambling Commission rules. Ms Qadri reportedly bought the property under the Government’s right-to-buy scheme three years ago for £360,000.
