Fair Rent Homes Now
Provide 70,000 Fair Rent Homes for anyone who needs a home in Ireland
Why is this important?
Housing injustice is a national emergency in Ireland.
We need a sustainable solution to the crisis.
The provision of state owned rental housing on a large scale, on a non profit basis, would go a long way toward solving the problem.
This would provide secure, affordable, high quality rental housing for anyone who needs it, no matter what your income is.
Fair Rent Homes would mean that:
- 70,000 households would be provided with a home, at a fair rent, for life
- a pool of high quality, Fair Rent Homes would be there, owned by the nation, for future generations, instead of spending billions on rent subsidies to private landlords
- pressure would be put on the private rental sector to improve standards and provide fairer rents in order to compete with Fair Rent Homes
