Lost income because of Covid means I face losing my home too – unless the government acts to prevent catastrophe
There are more than half a million tenants who owe their landlords rent. Nearly a quarter of a million fell into arrears during the pandemic. About 175,000 private tenants have already been threatened with being kicked out of their homes. And on Monday, the government is planning to lift its eviction ban.
When you think about it, it’s so completely unfair, it’s sort of unbelievable. Sometimes I wake up in the morning with a lump in my throat at the prospect of an eviction.
