A call for fair private rents, new social housing and secure tenancies

A call for fair private rents, new social housing and secure tenancies

The Living Rent Campaign say decent housing for all!

Why is this important?

Everyone needs a decent secure affordable home in which to flourish. We therefore call on Brighton and Hove Parliamentary candidates to campaign for the following changes, and to vote for them if elected:
• Bring back fair rents - a “Living rent” (achieved by rent controls)
• Protect private tenants with long secure tenancies
• Institute registration of all private landlords to ensure minimum standards of fire safety, energy efficiency and a decent home standard for private housing
• Abolish the Right to buy and lift borrowing ceilings and restrictions so councils can again build social rented housing
• Link rents policy to affordability not the market
• End discrimination against tenants on benefits

How it will be delivered

The petition will be delivered to all Parliamentary and Local Election candidates just prior to the election

Brighton and Hove

Reasons for signing

  • BECAUSE IM CURRENTLY HOMELESS IN BRIGHTON DUE TO THIS PROBLEM. ALSO BRIGHTON ARE NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR OWN RESIDENTS UNLESS EVEN IF YOU HAVE LIVED HERE FOR 10 YEARS IF YOU MISS ONE MONTH OF HAVING A PLACE TO LIVE YOU ARE THEN TAKEN OFF THE LISTS AND HANDED OVER TO THE NEXT NEAREST BOROUGH. THEY ARE PURPOSEFULLY DISPLACING PEOPLE WITH STRONG CONNECTIONS TO BRIGHTON.
  • Justice needed around the rights to rent.
  • Everyone deserves the dignity of a decent home at a rent that is fair
