Polly Neate, Chief Executive of Shelter, has sent an open letter to PM Boris Johnson calling for him to follow through with the Section 21 ban announced by Theresa May and “make these plans a reality by seeing through the crucial legislation a Conservative government has already committed to.”
Polly also directly attacked an individual letting agency, Harry Albert Lettings, declaring it “horrifying” their reaction to the announcement of the ban on section 21 by sending eviction notices to six tenants and said “such an abuse of power should have no place in this country.”
The letter started to the Prime Minister:
“You have arrived in office in the middle of a housing emergency. Almost 280,000 people are homeless in England, including 123,000 children. Half of young people have no chance of ever buying a home, and millions are trapped in expensive and unstable private renting.
“Clearly this emergency is crying out for some sort of ‘DUDE’ moment of its own.
“Your predecessor took a vital step towards improving the lives of England’s 11 million private renters when she unveiled plans to abolish ‘no-fault’ evictions. A move that would protect families and pensioners from being turfed out of their homes with only eight weeks’ notice, and wipe out the corrosive practice of revenge evictions by rogue landlords.”
Polly told Boris: “Our nation’s renters are in desperate need of a ‘love-bomb’, For us, and I hope for you, this is about more than winning votes. A safe and stable home is a fundamental human need.”
