Demand a Cardiff Renter's Access Charter!

Cardiff’s housing crisis includes an accessibility crisis. Landlords and agencies are now demanding huge sums of rent up front, and requiring high-paid guarantors to underwrite rents. These demands are used to discriminate against single parents, disabled and LGBTQ+ tenants, ex-forces tenants, welfare recipients and workers on zero-hours or insecure contracts. Landlord profits are secured – at the expense of tenants.

We demand a Renters' Access Charter for Cardiff:
1. One month maximum rent in advance
2. No guarantors - no discrimination
3. Expand the Cardiff Council Bond Scheme

Together we can end discriminatory barriers to rented homes in Cardiff.
