The Olympics – no private tenant winners!

May 13, 2012

There is increasing evidence that some landlords are evicting private tenants to get higher rents from visitors to the Olympics.

It has been reported that some tenants are being evicted illegally.

The whole problem with private renting is that there is no security for the majority of private tenants. The Assured Shorthold tenancy allows landlords an automatic right to possession and allows some rogue landlords to evict tenants in retaliation to their requests for repairs etc (see the NPTO report on for evidence on retaliatory eviction).

It is time private tenants had security of tenure.
