Our Safer Renting programme provides specialist advice, support and advocacy to help protect tenants who are victimised by criminal landlords
Safer Renting is the only service of its kind and, with the need for private tenant support services growing all the time, we are committed to strengthening rights and access to justice for people exploited by rogue landlords, making private renting safe for all.
We work build the strength and resilience of our communities by keeping residents in their homes and off the streets. Our service is accredited and independently audited by Advice Quality Standard.
We can help with
- Prevent homelessness, particularly by intervening in illegal evictions.
- Support private renters to negotiate better conditions in their homes.
- Enable private renters to leave a criminal landlord on their own terms, with compensation whenever possible.
- Inform government policy and best practice by analysing and communicating how criminal landlords are exploiting the London housing crisis at the expense of tenants.
