Emilie’s landlord forced her to pay six months’ rent up front for a flat which had a serious mould and damp problem from the day she moved in. Emilie’s efforts to work with them to resolve these issues have been met with stalling, inadequate cover up jobs, and attempts to abdicate blame and responsibility. The situation got so bad that Emilie hasn’t been able to live in the flat since 4th January.

By the time Emilie’s lease ends in mid-April she will have been paying rent on a flat she’s not been able to live in for over 3 months. Emilie’s landlord has only offered her a paltry half-month’s rent by way of compensation. That’s not good enough! We’re demanding they pay out for fair compensation - 3 months’ rent, bills and council tax, a full refund on Emilie’s deposit, and for the cost of repairs to Emilie’s belongings made necessary by the state of the flat to be covered.

One of the injustices of private renting is that by herself Emilie lacks the power and leverage to demand to be treated fairly. Fortunately Emilie is a member of Acorn. Let’s show Emilie’s estate agent and landlord that Acorn members can’t be pushed around! By taking action together we have the power to ensure that Emilie is heard and her demands are met.
