I want to find out more about the problems faced by private renters in London, and how the Mayor and Assembly Members in City Hall can help you to organise together to enforce the rules.

I rent my flat and know that high rents and frequently moving home can take their toll.

Please complete this survey – it only takes 3 minutes – and help us make stronger proposals for what can be done and the benefits a renters union could bring, based on evidence from the people who matter.

Green Member of the London Assembly
