About us

Tower Hamlets Renters campaigns for safe, secure and affordable housing for private renters. We also offer information and support to tenants experiencing problems with their landlord. While we do not have the resources to solve every problem, we believe by working together we can challenge the root causes of them: poor property management and poor legislation.    

What are we fighting for?                                                                              

  • Affordable rents with limits on rent rises
  • Longer tenancies
  • Decent living conditions: no damp & mould, proper insulation, secure windows & doors
  • An end to letting agent fees
  • Respect of landlords towards their tenants
  • Better information and support for private renters

Our current agenda (we always want to do much more than we can)

  • Monthly meetings to welcome new renters, offer support and plan campaigns and actions
  • Share skills, information and tactics with each other and groups across London
  • Take direct action against those responsible for the mess we’re in
  • Gather information and evidence about the difficulties renters face
  • Lobby politicians to improve legislation
