Book talk: Against Landlords with Nick Bano

May 2, 2024 | Uncategorized

Date and time: Wednesday 29 May, 6:30-8pm
Event space, Pelican House, 144 Cambridge Heath Road, E1 5QJ.

We are excited to welcome Nick Bano, housing barrister and author of Against Landlords: How to Solve the Housing Crisis, for a talk about his book. Against Landlords lays out a radical reinterpretation of the housing crisis, arguing that the cause of the crisis is that landlords have been allowed to profit from our need for shelter. It also sets out a path for how we can transform the housing system so that it serves the needs of tenants.

Nick Bano will be in conversation with London Renters Union organiser Alva Gotby. Afterwards, there will be a Q&A with the audience.
