The London Renters Union wants a city landlord to enter into negotiations to agree a fair deal for their members – and they’re determined to get their voices heard
Fed-up tenants have stepped up a campaign to get a rent reduction and building repairs by demonstrating outside the property manager’s head office.
More than 50 residents of Dorchester Court in London’s Herne Hill staged a socially distanced protest outside Property Partners in Waterloo, calling for a face-to-face meeting with their landlord, Manaquel Ltd. Tenants chanted demands including: “Property Partners we can’t wait, we want you to negotiate.” The tenants – members of the London Renters Union – have written to their landlord, demanding rent reductions, and are also asking for no evictions for arrears and essential repairs to their homes. Many have been hit hard by the crisis, but after Manaquel refused to offer any individual discounts, they decided to join together.
