New End Unfair Evictions Campaign
End Unfair Evictions is a coalition between Generation Rent, the New Economics Foundation, ACORN, the London Renters Union and Tenants Union UK.
We are fighting for an end to section 21 – the clause of the Housing Act 1988 that allows private landlords to evict tenants without having to give a reason. Section 21 strengthens landlords against renters, makes it hard for tenants to complain, has driven a rise in homelessness and encourages amateur landlords into the buy-to-let market. Abolishing section 21 must be central to any attempt to strengthen renter organising, give tenants more confidence to complain and make renting a safe, secure and affordable alternative to buying a property.
More information on this legislation can be found here. We aim to build the campaign through demonstrations, lobbying, petitions and any other effective tactic; we are run democratically and welcome new campaigners – anyone wishing to get involved should contact [email protected]
