Poll: Do you struggle to pay your rent?

Proposed new legislation could see rent hikes only being allowed once every two years.

NEW LAWS DUE to be considered by the government will include measures to freeze rents for two years.

Concerns have been expressed, however, that the proposal will lead to immediate rent hikes in advance of the legislation coming into effect later this year.

Following inquiries from worried members of the public, the PRTB warned yesterday that landlords must give tenants 28 days’ notice of any rent increase.

Meanwhile, new figures show almost 64,000 people across the country are now receiving the rent supplement.

So, how important would rent controls be for you?

This morning, we’re asking: Do you struggle to pay rent?


Poll Results:

Yes, often. (2852)
I don't pay rent. (2773)
No. (2554)
Yes, but only sometimes. (2144)
