Brent Council: #NotAnotherWinter with Damp and Mould!!

A group of London Renters Union members stand outside smiling and holding signsMore than 10,000 private rented homes in Brent have a serious health hazard. Damp and mould are making us sick, leading to asthma, respiratory issues, skin conditions, and  mould poisoning. 

Our children’s health is in crisis because landlords are being allowed to get away with not keeping our homes safe. Damp and mould mean people can’t use some rooms, and are overcrowded in the others. This meant that Church End had the highest Covid death rate in the country. 

Brent council has a legal duty to make sure our homes are safe but their current plan isn’t good enough. In the areas of Brent where housing is most dangerous, they’re only promising to deal with 10% of the most serious problems this year. What about the other 90% of renters left with unsafe homes?

It doesn’t have to be like this. Members of the London Renters Union in Brent have come together to create an action plan for how the council can hold landlords accountable and keep us safe. Add your name to our campaign. Together we can win safer homes for everyone.

#NotAnotherWinter

I support Brent LRU’s plan for how the council can deal with the damp and mould crisis by taking action when landlords fail to keep our homes safe. 

Brent council must:

  • Agree a timeline with the London Renters Union for dealing with the 10,000 unsafe private rented homes in Brent, and recruit the staff to do it.
  • Ensure that Environmental Health cases can never be closed before sending a report on what has been done to the tenant and confirming it with them.
  • Make interpretation available for the PRS enforcement team, especially in Arabic, Somali, Portuguese, Romanian, Urdu and Hindi.
  • Inspect ALL properties where a landlord has applied for a licence within 1 year, instead of 50% over 5 years.
  • Issue Improvement Notices that protect us from eviction while dealing with disrepair, and fine the landlords that refuse to fix up.

Brent Council: #NotAnotherWinter la Damp iyo Mould !!

A group of London Renters Union members stand outside smiling and holding signs

In ka badan 10,000 oo guryo kiro ah oo gaar loo leeyahay oo ku yaalla Brent ayaa halis daran ku ah dhanka caafimaadka. Damp iyo Mould ayaa naga dhigaya kuwo xanuunsanaya, taasoo horseediaysa neefta, dhibaatooyinka neef-mareenka, xaaladaha maqaarka, iyo sumoobidda caaryada.

Caafimaadka caruurteenna ayaa ku jira xaalad dhibaato sababtoo ah mulkiilayaasha guryaha ayaa loo ogolaaday inay ka baxaan iyagoo aan guryaheenna badbaadin. Damp iyo Mould micnaheedu waa in dadku aysan isticmaali karin qolalka qaar, kuwa kalena way ku buuxsami karaan. Tani waxay ka dhigan tahay in Kaniisaddu ay leedahay tirada dhimashada ee ugu badan ee Covid-19 ee waddanka gudaheed.

Brent Council waxaa saaran waajib sharciyeed si uu u hubiyo in guryaheenu ay yihiin ammaan laakiin qorshahooda hadda jira ma wanaagsana. Meelaha brent ee ay guryuhu ugu khatarta badan yihiin, waxay balanqaadayaan oo kaliya inay la tacaalaan 10% dhibaatooyinka ugu daran ee sannadkan. Maxaa ku saabsan 90% ee kale ee kireystayaasha ay la tageen guryo aan ammaan ahayn?

Ma aha in sidan ay noqoto. Xubno ka tirsan ururka kireysta kireysteyaasha London ee brenters Union ayaa isugu yimid in ay sameeyaan qorshe howleed ku aadan sidii golaha ay ula xisaabtami lahaayeen mulkiilayaasha guryaha, ayna noogu badbaadin lahaayeen. Magacaaga ku dar ololaheena. Si wada jir ah ayaan ugu guuleysan karnaa guriyo nabdoon qof kasta.

Qoraalka codsiga

Waxaan taageersanahay qorshaha Brent LRU ee ku aaddan sida uu golaha ula tacaali karo dhibaatada qoyaanka iyo caaryada iyagoo qaadaya tallaabo markii mulkiilayaashu ay ku guuldareystaan in ay guryaheenna ammaan helaan.

Brent Council waa in:

  • Kula heshii jadwalka kireystayaasha ee London si ay ula tacaalaan 10ka kun ee guryaha kirada ee gaarka loo leeyahay oo ku yaalla Brent, shaqaalahana u qortaan si ay u sameeyaan.
  • In la hubiyo in kiisaska caafimaadka deegaanka aan la xiri karin ka hor inta aan la soo dirin warbixin ku saabsan waxa lagu sameeyay kireystaha, lana xaqiijiyo.
  • Waxaad ka dhigtaa turjumaad ay diyaar u yihiin kooxda fulinta ee PRS, gaar ahaan afsoomaaliga, carabida, portuguese, romaniyanka, Urdu iyo Hindi.
  • Baaro dhamaan guryaha uu mulkiilahu ka codsado ruqsada 1 sano gudahood, halkii uu ka shaqeyn lahaa 50% wixii ka badan sanadka 5.
  • Arinta Hagaajinta Notices oo naga ilaalinaysa ka saamista annaga oo ku tacaalaysanaya dayactir laʼaan, oo ganaaxna saarayana mulkiilahii diidanaa in ay hagaajiyaan.
