Sadiq Khan– Ban Hostmaker ads on TFL
Transport for London has banned adverts for holiday let companies that take homes away from Londoners, following a successful campaign against the anti-tenant adverts by Generation Rent.
New advertising guidelines will mean that any advertising that encourages removing homes from the private rental market will be banned from the TfL estate.
The victory comes after over 8000 renters signed a Generation Rent petition asking TfL to drop adverts from short term lets company Hostmaker. In the adverts, Hostmaker told landlords they could increase their yield by 30% by ditching tenants and switching their properties to short term lets.
