Email your MP about the rent debt crisis

Feb 10, 2021

The government claims there’s an “eviction ban”. In reality, they’ve told landlords and bailiffs to go ahead with evicting anyone who is more than 6 months of rent arrears due to the pandemic. Dozens of our members and thousands of other renters are at imminent risk of eviction. 

We can’t rely on politicians to solve our problems for us. But we do need MPs in London to be joining our calls for greater protections for renters. Please take two minutes to share your experiences and views with your MP. 

If you have a current housing issue, its good to let your MP know. If you’re an LRU member, we can work with you to get your MP to usefully support you in addition to the support you’re getting from the union.

Use our simple tool to send a message to your MP using our template letter. Start by entering your postcode.
