Tell the London Mayoral candidates to put private renters first

If private renting is going to get cheaper we need to build more homes in London. A lot of the flats that are currently being built have already been snapped up by foreign investors who will be letting them out at as high a rent as possible, with no security for the tenants - or even just leaving them empty. 

We want to see more genuinely affordable homes being built alongside the market homes, but even in the market sector it can't be a free-for-all for the speculators. The next London Mayor should insist that if new homes are let out they should be on secure tenancies, with limits on rent rises - especially if they're being built with government subsidy or on public land.

Please write to the candidates for Mayor and ask them to give tenants priority in new housebuilding.
