It’s no secret that renting in Bristol can be a nightmare, from spiralling costs to high demand, poor conditions, discrimination and insecurity.
This series will tell the stories of renters in Bristol, dig into how the pandemic has affected the crisis, and, crucially, what can be done about it. We will join the dots between local issues and the wider housing crisis in the UK, holding the council and central government to account on pledges for action.
We are now investigating rogue landlords and poor living conditions, so you can share you experience confidentially here.
