Fed up with rising rents, dodgy landlords, and repairs not getting done? This year EPTAG has had many victories, and we hope to have a year of many more – but we need your support. Help us to stand up for tenants rights, by coming along to our AGM, and having your say on the direction of EPTAG in the coming year!
Edinburgh Private Tenants Action Group will have its first Annual General Meeting on Saturday the 13th of October, in the McDonald Road Library, from 2pm until 4pm.
It has been an exciting year, with EPTAG having had a great deal of success in supporting tenants and fighting against the injustices present in the private rented sector. A criminal landlord has been banned for the first time in Edinburgh, following our criminal landlords campaign. We have also had many victories against illegal letting agency fees, with the law being clarified to the position we campaigned for: to keep them all illegal.
Any private tenant in Edinburgh is entitled to vote, and to have their say. If you have any motions or constitutional amendments, please send these to the Secretary a week before the AGM, on or before Saturday 6th of October.
At the AGM there will be reports from our current office bearers, and a new committee will be elected. There will also be time for discussion and reflection. The business section of the AGM will be short, and will be followed by refreshments and a social.
