Dealing with an agressive or abusive landlord on your own can be terrifying. With ACORN behind you it’s easy” – ACORN member

Neighbours form human chain around a mum’s house to stop eviction” – Metro

“Now I know what people power looks like!” – 
Jacqui Lewis, ACORN member


Our strength is in our members and we act together to support each other when things go wrong with a landlord or letting agent. We take action to stop evictions, get repairs done, win deposits back, and to stop our members being mistreated by landlords and letting agents.

For example, we have: prevented revenge evictions, won hundreds of thousands of pounds in repairs to dangerous properties, got electricity restored to a tenant’s house, got a tenant their property back after an illegal eviction, won back thousands of pounds that were being unfairly taken from deposits and prevented serious harassment.
