What can we do about high rents, sh*t landlords & poor housing? @ Open House Oxford
Apr 3 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Discussion group to explore starting a tenants union in Oxford.

Whether it’s unaffordability, a complicated relationship with your landlord/agent, not getting the service you require, conflict over end of end a tenancy, the dispute of a deposit, or the state of your property.

We are trying to build a support network for renters:
– providing a space for tenants to share their problems in a safe space that offers solidarity and anonymity.
– a central point of information for renters rights.
– fighting housing discrimination, providing support to and stand in solidarity with those faced with housing discrimination.
– developing new campaigns and actions relating to specific housing issues in the city.
