About this campaign

Here’s the problem:
At the moment, it’s completely legal for a landlord to evict you, just for speaking up about bad conditions in your home.

What are Shelter doing about it?
60 MPs and thousands of supporters helped us get a bill to end revenge eviction to parliament last year. But at the last minute, two MPs blocked the debate, killing the bill.

What’s next?
The fight’s not over – in the next few weeks, the government are putting forward a new law to end revenge eviction. Read more about it on our blog.

Here’s the problem:

At the moment, it’s completely legal for a landlord to evict you for speaking up about bad conditions.

As a result, 200,000 renters have been evicted in this way in the past year – and many more live in fear. One in twelve private renters have avoided asking for repairs in case they are evicted.

The law badly needs to change – to stamp out revenge evictions, and to give renters back the confidence they need to ask for basic repairs.

What can we do about it?

On 28 November, MPs have the chance to end revenge eviction.

They’ll be debating a small change to the law: to stop landlords issuing an eviction notice when the tenant has made a legitimate complaint about conditions.

For the Bill to pass, enough MPs need to attend the debate and the majority need to vote in favour. You can see more about how the Bill will become law here.

How can I help?

You can tell your MP to save the date – to attend Parliament on 28 November and vote to end revenge evictions.

Normally, MPs go back home on a Thursday to do constituency work on a Friday. This time, we need them to stay in Westminster until Friday morning, so they can vote to change the lives of the thousands of renters they represent.

Email your MP and ask them to stay in parliament on Friday 28 November.
