The cost of living crisis is a rent crisis.

Many renters are seeing their rents increase. LRU members are reporting huge rent rises of as much 30% or even 50%.

Landlords and estate agents are using the cost of living crisis as an excuse to squeeze tenants and boost profits. They get richer while the rest of us suffer.

Together renters can support each other to stay in our homes and demand a rent freeze so that landlords are banned from putting up the rent.
