|Dozens of LRU members who have lost their income are at imminent risk of eviction. Many have already started receiving court hearing dates. Our members who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF) are at particular risk because they are likely to face far greater difficulties securing emergency accommodation from the council if they are evicted.
By saying that renters who are facing financial problems during the pandemic should be evicted, the government is prioritising landlord profits over our lives.
We can’t trust politicians to make the changes we need to the housing system, but right now we do need to pressure as many MPs as possible to speak out.
