What do you think of Section 21? It’s the clause which permits landlords to evict renters with two months notice, without giving a reason. Do you live in Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets or Barking & Dagenham? If so, Jonathan at the Archant Group of newspapers, wishes to hear from you on this subject.
Whether you have direct experience of having lost a home through a Section 21 or whether it’s something you fear, your voice matters.
Renters’ Rights London stands with Generation Rent and London Renters’ Union in the campaign to #EndS21. More than 45,000 people have now signed the petition to end unfair evictions. We all know that renters’ need for greater security is urgent.
We are delighted that London Assembly voted in favour of Sian Berry’s proposal to petition Mayor Sadiq Khan, to back the campaign to #EndSection21. England and Wales are among very few countries in Europe that allow private landlords to evict their tenants so fast, and without having to give a reason. End of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy is now the most common cause of homelessness here.
