In October after years of pushing, Living Rent members won a rent freeze and eviction ban across Scotland!
We're only two months in AND we're already hearing of landlords threatening to hike up rent as soon as they can or threatening to kick tenants out as soon as they can. On top of that, tenants in joint tenancies are often forced to accept 'open market rents' as soon as a tenants wants to move out, and anyone seeking to move into a property is being hit by hikes of on average 18% year on year (in Edinburgh and Glasgow) but often much higher.
Social and council housing tenants are also concerned that the freeze will not apply to them as the freeze is currently set to end at the end of March and their rent increases on April 1st.
All this shows how badly we need the rent freeze and eviction ban to remain in place. We need to show the Scottish government the impact that the rent freeze has had and how much we need it to continue.
Share your testimony and share the form with your friends. Let's make sure our experiences gets heard and not landlords' cry for profits!
