I am sure many people are in our shoes. 

My husband and I have been unwell for over a month and have been at home trying to get better. We got sick and the soon after the whole house got sick and before we knew it a whole 4 weeks have gone by. We found ourselves in very difficult financial difficulties and are struggling to pay our upcoming rent.

We wrote to our landlord making him aware that we are not able to make up for the rent due to the current circumstances and reassured him that we will do once we are able to go back to work and once the lockdown has been lifted.

His response was far from any we were expecting, he simply said: "make sure you come up with the rent in full and on time".

I' am asking our government to freeze the rent for the next three months as the pressure of not having income and having to be able to survive is building up and new strict measures need to be in place to protect renters all over the country. 

They simply have not done enough to protect us and we are getting bullied in what is one of the worst situations our nation has ever faced. People are struggling to keep on going and we need protection. We are trying our very best to Stay at Home to Safe Lives, you also need to protect us from landlords that simply are greedy and lack sympathy in such a horrific time we are all facing.

Please do more to protect us as you have protected people who have a mortgage.
