Home Sweet Home E17: Day of Public Action, Town Square, 1.30pm, Saturday

This Saturday 9 August from 1.30pm we will be in Walthamstow Town Square with our campaign to highlight the good and bad behaviour in our local housing market. 

With Walthamstow seeing the biggest increases in the country in house prices in the last year, and rents going up by nearly 10% in our area at the same time, only through collective action to tackle the behaviours that are distorting prices and encouraging exploitation can we ensure that all residents can access quality housing. Please join us on Saturday to show your support and send a strong message we will not tolerate these practices in Walthamstow. 

Damp, extortionate charges and misleading information are all too common for many residents - and the good landlords, estate agents and letting agents find their reputations tarnished as a result too. Please join us and the Movement for Change with our 'wheel of misfortune' activity (plus a few 'cockroaches' and other uninvited guests) as well as encouraging residents to nominate in our Local Living Awards: 
All nominations are confidential - categories include topics such as from 'Best' and 'Worst' letting agent, 'best' or worst' offer to completion and  even 'Most Inventive Excuse’!
