Big Lettings Agents - Let me paint my room

This petition had 158 supporters

 We think people should be able to paint the properties they pay (often extortionate) rents for!

Current letting regulations mean that people are living their lives in bland, white boxes that their landlords won't let them paint.

This is a problem that's only getting worse. Rising property prices and overcrowding mean that the U.K. private rented sector has doubled since 2002 and 57% of renters never expect to buy* also meaning that they never expect to paint!

Self expression is a human right that shouldn't be denied to people just because they happen to pay for their homes monthly.

We believe that magnolia should be a choice not a rule, that children deserve bright rooms and that grown adults know what's best for their skirting boards.

We want the big lettings agents to acknowledge this problem and find a solution which works for both landlords and tenants.

Its time to tell letting agents to LET ME PAINT MY ROOM!
