In parts of SE1, Notting Hill Housing Trust (Their "Market Rent" department) are putting up the rent by up to 34%.
I have spoken to residents in Achilles Close, Acanthus Drive and Abercorn Way about this, many have asked for help and advice.
If you rent from Notting Hill Housing in SE1, please get in touch, especially if you have been offered the three options either:
Pay the increase,
Receive notice to quit,
Give notice to quit.
I would have thought a class action with the rent tribunal would be the way forward, I live across the road in Press Court, has anyone tried to organise the residents as a body? Are the current rents in line with the market?
Simon Hughes, Michael Bukola, Paul Kyriacou & myself met with their Chief Officer, and made the case for the tenants. Andy Belton, their chief exec agreed that they need to sort themselves out. I've noticed they have started some grounds work maintenance, that I raised with them some time ago, so maybe things are changing.
