We wrote to all AMs last weekend, sending them this Letter to the Minister for Housing and a plea to every AM of every party to support us. Mark Isherwood and Peter Black replied to us quickly and we had several positive comments from Labour AMs. But unfortunately, the Housing Minister has still not listened.
The Housing Bill is a fantastic opportunity to reform the sector to be fair for landlords, letting agents and, most importantly, tenants.
Please show your support for tenants and Let Down in Wales and consider proposing a Housing Ombudsman (like England) or a Housing Tribunal (like Scotland) for the Bill to give Welsh tenants a fair deal.
If you would like more information then please do reply directly to this email address to find out more about the campaign. We also currently have a petition going through the Petitions Committee (http://www.senedd.assemblywales.org/mgIssueHistoryHome.aspx?IId=8693) which is grouped with one from Aberystwyth’s Students’ Union asking for poor private sector student housing to be addressed (http://www.senedd.assemblywales.org/mgIssueHistoryHome.aspx?IId=6519). The Minister replied and our response to him is also attached to this email.
Many thanks for your time,
Coordinator – Let Down in Wales
