Protect tenants from unfair evictions
The government is planning a public consultation on giving renters more security. Most landlords want long term tenants, but a significant minority relies on the easy eviction process to speculate on rising house prices or maximise rents. We need proper regulation to ensure minimum standards.
Generation Rent is calling on the government to scrap the no-fault eviction law and entitle tenants faced with an unwanted move to compensation from their landlord and a longer notice period. This would stop landlords from evicting tenants on a whim, reduce homelessness and give renters more stable lives.
Write to your MP now and ask them to protect renters.
