Loughborough landlords can be excellent; some of them are great. However, there is a growing number of irresponsible and predatory landlords and letting agents who take advantage of students. Students are left with problems like mould, stolen deposits, and landlords who simply don't do their jobs.
I would like LSU's support to start a Tenant's Union, following the format of Tenants Union UK to provide support and representation for student tenants in Loughborough. Should this idea be a success, I can see it branching out to cover all tenants in Loughborough, student or not.
Our students deserve to know their rights, and deserve to be supported and helped when they need it.
