END UNFAIR EVICTIONS

Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 makes it shockingly easy for landlords to evict renters. England is one of the only countries in Europe that allows private landlords to evict their tenants without having to give a reason. The London Renters Union is part of the #EndSection21 campaign.
