    During this public health crisis, tenants need rent reductions and rent holidays, just like landlords have been awarded mortgage holidays and interest-free loans.

    Government and third-sector advice on paying rent during Corona time is to simply ‘negotiate with your landlord’. Living Rent says:
    The only way to negotiate with your landlord is with your union by your side.

    Join the Living Rent Member Defence Coordinator and members for a session on how to effectively support our members and tenants in negotiating rent suspensions and holidays during Corona time. Please join especially if you are interested in getting involved with a Living Rent Member Defence team.

    We will be going through...
    - Why we should negotiate with our union by our side
    - Top tips from members in successful and ongoing negotiations
    - How to respond to landlord's deviating tactics
    - How this fits into the vision for tenant power going forwards
