Living Rent members are working tirelessly to stop evictions. The Coronavirus Act 2020 'eviction ban' did not stop landlords from pursuing court orders nor did it prevented sheriff officers from carrying out those court orders. The current full eviction ban in level 3 and 4 areas, won by Living Rent, is not in effect in level 2 areas. An evictions crisis is on the horizon.
Together, Living Rent members can build resistance. When evictions are set to go ahead, we need well-organised community support, on the ground and at the door, to make the sheriff officers turn around.
