Threshold Warns Of Surge In Homelessness Once Renters' Protections Are Lifted.

: 06/04/2020 - 13:37

A housing charity is warning there may be an increase in the number of homeless people when government measures to protect renters are lifted.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there's a ban on rent increases and evictions for the next couple of months.

Threshold says the number of calls it has received has trebled in the past couple of weeks.

It says the majority of people seeking help are fearful of falling into rent arrears due to a lack of income.
