INTERNATIONAL TENANTS’ DAY 2023
INTERNATIONAL TENANTS’ DAY 2023: WE CALL FOR A NEW DEAL FOR AFFORDABLE RENTAL HOUSING
Against a background of global conflicts, climate change driven disasters, high inflation, and ever-increasing energy prices the need for affordable housing is brought into focus.
The IUT stresses that safe and affordable housing is a universal human right and must be legally enforced in the constitutions, and legislation of every country across the globe, as well as a central pillar of all policymaking.
IUT President Marie Linder says:
– On the occasion of the International Tenants’ Day, we call on governments to enter a new deal with tenants for affordable rental housing.
In concrete terms, this means:
* That an affordable rent will apply that is related to the quality and location of a property,
* ensuring that tenants are not evicted from their homes and that homelessness is combated,
* that renters are given a seat at the decision-making table.
