Transparent and open finances.
Grace was served with a section 21 (a no-fault eviction) for the first time last year after several months of harassment and disrepair (such as serious water leaks and rat infestations). This included being sent constant texts, being repeatedly told by the landlord to “get out” and claims that the family were living in their home illegally. The original section 21 lapsed, and when continued harassment did not push Grace out of her home, a new one was issued earlier this year. Grace and her family have been model tenants and never missed a rent payment.
They are being made to leave their home on the simple whim of the landlord. The government announced that these no-fault evictions would be banned back in 2019, BUT tenants are still waiting for this to come into law. While they wait, they can find themselves paying hundreds or even thousands of pounds to fund their own evictions, even when the landlord admits that it is not the tenant’s fault.
In this case, the landlord’s lawyer admitted in court that this house is being sold to prop up the landlord’s Kitchen and Bathroom business. As long as the laws remain written in this ridiculous and unjust manner, landlords will have more of a right to second homes and personal businesses than the rest of us will have warmth and shelter.
If you find this “justice” as disgusting as we do, please donate to this fund to help Grace pay off the court fees, which she was burdened with just for trying to avoid homelessness.
