Protect tenants from unfair evictions

It is so easy for landlords to evict a tenant that it is almost impossible for renters to feel like they have a long-term home. One in four of us has faced an unwanted move, and none of us really knows where we'll be living in a year's time. 

The government says it wants to help renters into longer tenancies. Most landlords want long term tenants, but with a significant minority relying on an easy eviction process to speculate on rising house prices or maximise rents, proper regulation is essential to ensure minimum standards.

Generation Rent is calling on the government to scrap the no-fault eviction law and entitle tenants faced with an unwanted move to compensation from their landlord and a longer notice period. This would stop landlords from evicting tenants on a whim, reduce homelessness and give renters more stable lives.
