Waste service strike

A number of Tower Hamlets Council frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be going on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute.  

Despite the council working to maintain services for residents, the strike will impact collections and cleansing across the borough. We apologise in advance for the disruption this will cause.

Fair tenancy

Your tenancy must be clear and fair. You shouldn’t be hit with surprise fees.

Your tenancy agreement should be written in a way that you can understand. The landlord won’t be able to enforce anything that is not made clear.

Your tenancy agreement shouldn't contain anything that is unfair.  For example, your tenancy should not take away legal rights, and should not say that you will pay extra fees for ordinary parts of a landlord’s job like repairs, or that your landlord can come into your home whenever they want. The landlord won’t be able to enforce anything that is unfair.

Get advice if you think anything in your agreement is unfair.
