The TRA is campaigning for our landlords to properly deal with damp in residents’ flats.
We’ve set up a support group for people who are involving lawyers
We’re also using the court of public opinion. We’ll go door to door to ask people to fill out pro forma complaint forms. We’ll use these as a petition to take to the council (which regulates all landlords, public and private) or our landlords. If we missed you here’s advice on how to complain
Our landlords have already responded to our campaign. But neither we, nor Lambeth Council, this this is enough. Lambeth Council has agreed to appoint an environmental health inspector. They’ve set out the process for doing this
We’ve been fighting this for many years:
In 2016 we held a public meeting with Peter Roach, the Metropolitan repairs manager. He agreed to get a structural engineer to look at the problems. To date (May 2019) we have not of this happening
In 2018 several residents took individual action against their landlords with the support of the TRA. They reported their landlords made the process very unpleasant.
