We are done with renting. Damp and mould. Bad landlords. Being evicted for no reason.
Renting was broken before the pandemic but now with the added pressure of a cost-of-living crisis private renters feel more stretched, insecure and scared.
We look at the state of renting and we say: enough is enough.
It doesn't have to be like this.
Over two years ago the government promised us a Renters’ Reform Bill. This once-in-a-generation bill could change renting for good. It’s due in 2022 and is our chance to win the security and rights we all deserve.
We must call on the government to make sure that this new law:
- Scraps unfair Section 21 ‘no fault’ eviction notices – which allow landlords to evict tenants even when they’ve done nothing wrong, with just two months’ notice
- Creates a National Landlord Register - so renters know who their landlord is and where to get help if things go wrong
- Gives Local Authorities more power to uphold renters' rights
Nothing will change unless we make sure that 2022 is the year we finally get the government to fix renting.
Enough is enough. The government must give our country's 11 million private renters the security and rights we all deserve.
