Question

Residents in the properties formerly owned by MOPAC are now on assured shorthold tenancies generally for a twelve month period. While in your reply to my previous questions on this you state that the proper relationship is between Crown Simmons and the tenant your Deputy Mayor for Policing, Stephen Greenhalgh previously talked about a 'new approach so that eviction of long-standing tenants, some of whom are key workers, cannot arise in future.  The Metropolitan Police is not a landlord, but it is right that we find new owners for sites like this that can give tenants the security they deserve'. Will you contact Crown Simmons to ensure the tenants are now provided with greater security of tenure?
