In September, the Scottish government will announce new legislation to protect tenants called 'The New Deal for Tenants'.
We have been building and fighting for this legislation since 2016 and now we need to organise to push our MSPs to improve and vote for the legislation.The legislation at is stands is likely to include rent controls, joint tenancies, winter evictions, illegal evictions, keeping pets and redecorating our flats.
It seems to be mostly concerned with private tenants' rights.But we need it to go further. Come to this workshop to learn more about our demands and prepare for meetings with MSPs to pensure that they put our needs first.During the workshop, we will:
- Go over problems faced by private tenants
- Discuss Living Rent’s demands
- Roleplay speaking to your MSP
- Agreeing on next steps
