House prices and rental prices have gone to extortionate highs .
In Essex, England as in many other parts of the Uk and Europe more and more people are becoming homeless because rents are far higher than their incomes .
Wages have barely gone up in 20 years and many wages have reduced from what they were over 20 years ago .
Rents and house prices have gone up to ridiculous highs proving that landlords, estate agents and letting agents are living in a different world to the average person on the street . They are responsible for the homeless, because if rents were in line with what minimum wage and benefits are, there would not be this growing homeless problem .
To demand that landlords and agents lower rents to what billions of people can actually afford and live .
I started this petition because…
I am in the stages of being evicted from our current rental home . Our third move in 6 years . Rents have gone up so much that me and my son now need a guarantor , which we do not have . We do not earn enough to pay rent , pay fares , pay bills and pay for food . Rental prices in Canvey Island have gone up far too much, as they have elsewhere .
I got divorced in 2013 and all my money from my house has gone on paying landlords, bills and food .
