Support Guinness Trust Tenants Facing Eviction
Assured shorthold tenants (AST) in the Loughborough Park estate have been told to give up possession of their homes by November 16th.
Guinness is demolishing the old estate and building new blocks many of which they intend to rent at full market rates – so they have no more need for the shorthold tenants on social housing rents and they are kicking them out.
But not all tenants are prepared to be pushed around by Guinness. Many of them have lived there for up to 14 years and have raised their families there. They are demanding secure tenancies and to be rehoused in the local area by Guinness.
They have already organised protests and are now holding a meeting with Lambeth Law Centre who will help them fight this case legally. They are determined to fight for their rights by any means necessary!
How you can help:
- If you live on the Guinness Trust estate please come to the legal advice meeting at 7pm on Tuesday 14th October in the Southwyck House Community Centre. More details here
- If you don’t live on the Guinness Trust estate please leave a message of support on the campaign’s facebook page
