On Thursday the 6th of October, the Scottish government passed a rent freeze and eviction ban for all tenants throughout Scotland.
Whilst there are some concerning limitations to the Bill, it's a massive relief. In the middle of a cost of living crisis, when all is increasingly uncertain, the last things tenants need is massive rent hikes and evictions. Over the last year, landlords have poured petrol on the cost of living crisis by increasing rents on top of already soaring energy bills and other costs. It's time that they start realising that we cannot be sheltering them from the crisis!
Thi sis a massive win for all tenants across Scotland, and shows the power that we have when we come together.
