'I don't want to wake up some days': The devastating impact of the rise in no fault evictions

ITV Central, 5th September 2023


ITV News Central Reporter Ciaran Fitzpatrick investigates what getting a no-fault eviction is like for tenants in the West Midlands and what can be done to tackle the crisis



The Labour MP for Edgbaston, Preet Gill, says more people are coming to her for support when being served evictions.


Gill says landlords are facing a "very difficult" situation as mortgage rates have gone up 21 times since 2021, which means "they have to either sell their properties or increase the rent".


She says it's also hard for councils too as temporary accommodation is "not appropriate" for some families.


"Having more homes and making sure people can afford them will absolutely address the issue."
