Mayor signs anti-eviction petition to Tottenham letting agent Mayor signs anti-eviction petition to Tottenham letting agent

A tenant facing eviction has delivered a petition signed by the mayor of Tower Hamlets and 18 councillors to his landlord's letting agent.

Michael James and his supporters visited Andlow Properties in Tottenham to personally deliver the petition.

Mr James says he was served with an eviction notice after he reported dangerous conditions at his block in Shadwell, east London in February.

Mr James said: "There seems to be a one-way channel. The landlord and agent can get in touch with us if they want to raise the rent but if my bathroom ceiling is covered with mould or a dangerous piece of concrete is lying on the pathway of the third floor, no one is there to talk to. They don't have much interest in taking care of their property."
