It has been brought to our attention that Sanctuary Students has engaged a third party debt recovery service and students are receiving e-mails threatening legal action should the debt not be repaid in 7 days. We recognise that this is beyond our ability to fight alone, so we have engaged a law firm to represent us against Sanctuary Students.
This is a scary update but please rest assured that we are being proactive about the situation. We have confirmed that the law firm will be representing us pro bono, and we are working to collect all of the evidence we might need to defend ourselves.
So, what can you do right now?
Don’t panic. You don’t need to pay up and you don’t need to respond. From here on out, we are letting our legal team communicate on our behalf.
If you have any relevant evidence (e-mails, written communications, photos, etc.) that may be useful, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with “EVIDENCE” as the subject line.
We are holding another Zoom town hall tomorrow at 11:00 BST. If you have any questions or anything you want to ask the team about, join us here: https://lse.zoom.us/j/95504432667
At this very moment, our legal team is figuring out our course of action. We will make sure every single one of you is protected. The rent strike team is here for you if you need to talk.
