Craig Bloomer started this petition to UK Parliament

I amongst millions of others currently rent my home from a private landlord and have rent to pay. If me or my family (or the millions of others private tenants) is affected by the Covid19 virus and have to self isolate for 14 days possibly more trying to keep up my rent payments will be extremely difficult on statutory sick pay or even near impossible, which in turn will plunge private Tennant into rent arrears causing possible eviction and having a negative impact on credit scores affecting my/ others chances of a future rented home, mortgage or other finance, the government are offering mortgage holidays for home owners during this period, pressure is being put on house associations and local councils to offer rent holidays for tenants, but all we have as private tenants is to try to appeal to our landlords good nature which to be honest not alot of them have, there is no pressure from the government to help us. Just because we don't own our homes or rent them from the council or housing association doesn't mean we don't have rights

Please sign this petition and try to get help for the millions of private tenants that will be severely struggling during this period
