Tenants of the New Era estate in London’s Hoxton district have raised fears they could be evicted by Christmas after the estate’s new owners, US-based Westbrook Partners, went back on their promise not to raise rents again until 2016.
According to the Guardian, the company plans to renovate the estate and introduce market-level rents, taking some flats from £600 a month to around £2,400.
The group are hoping to raise awareness of their struggle, like the E15 campaigners in Newham, who occupied vacant East London flats in protest at plans to demolish a housing estate.
