.@gordonmaloney of @living_Rent concluding our housing panel. LR been campaigning for rent controls & housing justice. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@gordonmaloney: Living Rent deliberately set itself up as a Union. Member defence work has similarities to legal case work. While campaigning for legislative change, much already exists. The problem is the law is regularly being broken by landlords with impunity.
.@gordonmaloney: Edinburgh Council has powers to fine landlords up to £50,000. As far as we know the highest fine - if even used - has been £400. What disincentive is that? #JusticeEdinburgh
.@gordonmaloney: Unfair deposit charges are a regularly occurrence & many people put up with it. Illegal fees are still charged by landlords & letting agents. It needs to be challenged. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@gordonmaloney: Why aren’t the authorities enforcing housing law in Scotland? Is it lack of resources, political will? What can we do to change it. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@gordonmaloney: Living Rent are winning housing cases every week. We need to empower people. In 1 case with Scotland’s biggest letting agent we protested, we came together. Instead of an isolated claim the Union made the tenant powerful. #JusticeEdinburgh
