Next TH Renters meeting: 7-9pm, Tues, 8 Sept, 236 Cable St, E1

Please join us for our next meeting this Tuesday, 7-9pm, in the basement of St Georges Hall, 236 Cable St, Shadwell, E1 0BL.

Catch up on what we’ve been up to over the summer and what we’ve got planned this autumn. Lots to get involved in or if you’re having a private landlord nightmare come share it with us.

On the agenda is:

  1. Planning for a community meeting in Poplar about Poplar Harca’s plans to redevelop Chrisp St market. What do residents, traders and shoppers want? So far Harca has failed to ask. We hope to bring the community together and get the conversation started.
  2. Getting started with our letting agent online research campaign. We’ll take a look at how people can help list the letting agents operating in the borough, their fees, and if they’re regulated.
  3. Supporting people facing eviction. What can we do to help? We’ve had a number of requests to support people facing eviction recently and do what we can, but could no doubt do more. What can we learn from Eviction Resistance and should we formally connect with them?
  4. Landlord licensing scheme. The much heralded scheme has been put on hold by the new administration as it gets to grips with its ‘to-do’ list. What should we do to help push it along in the direction that benefits tenants most?

Plus all the usual updates from Stop the Blocks, Radical Housing Network, and upcoming dates for the diary including East London in Crisis on 26th Sept

Hope to see you there :o)
