A chaotic rent debt and evictions crisis: Write your MP!

12 May 2020 — London Renters Union

Today we’ve written to the government jointly with two other renter organisations, Living Rent in Scotland and ACORN, a community union that organises renters who live outside of London.

Renters are being forced to choose between paying rent or buying food and other essentials. Many renters are already in debt. Fear of eviction and rent debt is forcing people to go out and work rather than staying home. The government is putting renters in danger and we’re heading for a chaotic rent debt and evictions crisis.

We’re demanding that the government suspends rents, cancels rent debt, makes the eviction ban permanent and introduces rent controls.

Send a quick message to your MP

We can’t rely on politicians to solve our problems for us. Later this week, we’ll be launching an important campaign to win greater protections for renters.homeless

But we do need MPs in London to be supporting our demands. Please take two minutes to share your experiences and views with your MP.

In friendship and solidarity,
Amina and Michael
