Over the past year, Age UK have heard from more and more older people who can’t afford to own their home and are trapped in privately rented housing for the rest of their lives. So they have decided they need to do something about it, and urgently.
Landlords are allowed to evict older renters at short notice even when they’ve done nothing wrong. That’s stressful and uncertain for anyone, but it’s even harder as you get older and need more stability.
Age UK are asking the Government to keep their promise to end no-fault evictions. They are consulting on the issue at the moment and if enough of us stand up for older private renters, we can give more people a safe and stable home to grow old in.
