We are Digs and this is what we want!

Rent hikes, discrimination against people on benefits, exploitation from landlords and agents; It’s a miserable time to be a renter. Now Digs have launched our Mission to make life better for renters! This Mission will form the cornerstone of all our demands and all our actions.

1. The Market | That everyone have access to good, affordable housing that meets their needs.

2. Security of Tenure | Everyone has access to long term, secure homes

3. Landlord/ letting agent relations | Letting agents and landlords are regulated independently and tenants have accessible, effective mechanisms to enforce their rights. People are treated equally and with respect and honesty by landlords and agents who understand and fulfil their legal obligations. Renters always have accountability, transparency and recourse mechanisms to enforce their rights without penalisation.

4. Housing Standards | All rented homes are of a good standard and meet renters’ needs. Renters always have accountability, transparency and recourse to accessible, effective mechanisms to enforce their rights without penalisation.

We need you!
