This is another reason the Tories wanted to leave the EU, so the landlords among them don't have to make sure the homes they rent out are safe! Many of the new homes will be snapped up by those crooks!
This absolutely resonates with me (even before Grenfell) given I live in social housing with no soundproofing (so perhaps no proper fire insulation either) and only 1 escape route/exit. Life is made needlessly stressful for all the cheap options they took building the place (they even fitted a gas boiler from a faulty batch and wouldn't replace it for 9 years)
it should be mandatory that all rented accommodation be fit for human habitation and that all people are found accommodation my home at the moment is beyond damp and affecting my health so this petition is really important to me
