Join us

Become a member of London Renters Union to stand up to landlords, stand up for tenant rights and transform the housing system through collective action.

Why join?

London Renters Union is a new member-led, campaigning union. We’re currently building branches in Newham & Leytonstone, Lewisham and Hackney. We’re aiming to have branches across London. When you join, we’ll put you in touch with your local branch or we’ll support you to help set one up.

  • You’ll join a city-wide community of renters who speak with a united voice. We organise regular branch meetings, trainings, socials and other events.
  • You’ll get support from other London Renters Union members if you face a housing problem like your deposit being stolen, disrepair or the threat of eviction. We stand together against the landlords and estate agents who exploit us.
  • You’ll add your voice to a campaigning movement taking collective action to make sure all Londoners have a decent, secure and affordable place to call home.

Who can join London Renters Union?

London Renters Union is open for membership to all renters in London. We are primarily focused on the private rented sector, but all tenants are welcome to join whether you rent from a private or social landlord. Homeless people and others excluded from housing are welcome to join.

Homeowners and people living outside London are welcome to join as solidarity members but will not be able to participate in union decision-making. Landlords and people whose jobs involve carrying out evictions are not eligible to join.

How much does it cost?

We offer a sliding scale membership fee. This means you decide how much to pay based on what you can afford starting from £4 per month.

Free membership available if you are unwaged and cannot afford to pay. Click here to find out more.
