On 28 November 2014 is the second reading of the Tenancies (Reform) Bill, aiming to protect tenants against retaliatory eviction. Landlord bodies, such as the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) and the National Landlords Association (NLA), are strongly opposed to the Bill.
We know threw our support work that retaliatory evictions are a big problem for many families and individuals who have to survive in London’s private rented sector.
The Tenancies (Reform) Bill proposes to stop landlords from serving a Section 21 eviction notice if their tenants have complained about a serious health hazard or repair issue. That is a step forward but in order to stop insecurity, evictions and displacement, we need to end no fault evictions (section 21).
24 November: Join the howl for housing!
To get MPs to vote on the 28th for the reform, there will be a demo on 24 November, 6:30pm outside Parliament (https://www.facebook.com/events/1420453581547759/?ref=4). We support the protest, organized by the youth branch of the trade union GMB. Please come along if you can, let’s make some noise for save and secure housing for everyone!
