Threshold #GE2020 Campaign

Door Step Challenge!

Let’s make #RentersRights an election issue this February.

When candidates call to your door, ask them about their commitments to strengthen tenants’ rights and protect people from losing their homes

  1. Will you introduce indefinite tenancies and remove “no reason” evictions from the Residential Tenancies Act?
  2. Will you introduce a Deposit Protection Scheme and restrict rental deposits to 1 month’s rent?
  3. Will you commit to the introduction of a transparent dwelling specific rent register to allow tenants to know if their rent is lawful?
  4. Will you commit to revising the HAP limits upwards as current limits are insufficient to allow many on low incomes to secure, private rental accommodation?
  5. Will you make a commitment to hold a referendum on the Right to Housing?

Know where your candidate stands

We asked all of the political parties to clarify their position on #RentersRights.
