Living Rent Glasgow

BY DAVID HANSON
@ VOL 36 ON APR 17, 2019

We are Living Rent, Scotland’s Tenants’ Union. We are a democratic organization run by and for tenants. We want homes for people, not for profit; to redress the power imbalance between landlords and tenants; and ensure that everyone has decent and affordable housing.

We believe in the collective power of tenants to come together to fight for their rights and use diverse tactics – including direct action when necessary – to achieve this. 

Whether you’re experiencing problems with your landlord, think rent is just too high, or want to find a way to solve the housing crisis, Living Rent, as Scotland’s most effective and exciting housing movement in decades, provides a radical alternative that puts tenants first. 

David Hanson explains.
