The GCN Housing team join Greater Manchester Law Centre and Tenants Union UK to call for greater protection for tenants

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, tenants are more likely than ever to accrue arrears and more likely than ever to face eviction.

Members of the GCN Housing team have joined with the Greater Manchester Law Centre and Tenants Union UK to call for greater protections to be put in place.

These protections include the abolition of section 21 or ‘no fault’ evictions, changes to the statutory scheme for eviction on the basis of rent arrears, updates to the ‘How to rent’ guide and increased procedural protection in the courts.

The proposals, submitted in response to the Housing Committees and Local Government Select Committee’s call for evidence, can be found here.
