It’s been a year since the government committed to scrapping no-fault evictions. This is one of the biggest shake ups to the private renting system we’ve seen for a long time and is a major win – one we could never have secured without the support of people like you.
And while there have been big changes to the government in the past 12 months, it’s not going to stop us from making sure it upholds its promise to end no-fault evictions and make private renting fairer for everyone.
But if we’re going to make sure that change happens, we’re going to need your continued support. Together, we can keep up the pressure and build a movement to show the government that we won’t rest until renters’ rights are better protected.
Supporters like you can be the difference
The good news is that while we may not yet have seen changes to the law, the government have recommitted to their pledge to end no-fault evictions. They’ve brought forward a Renters’ Reform Bill that could do exactly what we’re calling for: change our housing law and redistribute power between landlords and renters.
If you’ve ever rented privately, you probably have a renting horror story of your own. Hopefully it’s not as bad as the worst cases, which our helpline advisers and services teams encounter every day. From a window that doesn’t close properly and damp and mould in cupboards to intimidating landlords and extortionate rent increases, we’ve seen it all.
But under current plans, the Bill could put an end to this. It would save renters money when they pay deposits and make it easier for people to take action against poor living conditions without fear of eviction.
Speak out against injustice and help make change happen
Shelter supporters like you are an essential part of winning this change. And in the coming months, we’ll be launching a campaign to help put pressure on the government and make sure this Bill protects renters’ rights.
Will you join us and help make change happen? Together, we can be the campaigners who share renting horror stories, the activists who meet MPs, and the supporters who speak out against injustice to make our voices heard.Join the movement and be the first to know about updates to the campaign
