RENT CONTROLS AND SECURITY OF TENURE
We demand the government take immediate action to tackle the rental crisis, stop spiraling rents and give tenants greater security of tenure.
Why is this important?
Rent should not take more than one third of anybody’s income. If it does so, you could be falling below the poverty line.
Irish rents have reached crazy levels and they sometimes eat up nearly half of many tenants' income.
The high rents mean that you can never save enough money for a deposit on a house. You will be stuck in a rent trap for the rest of your life.
One in three TDs from Fine Gael and Fianna Fail are landlords – and so they have a vested interest in voting down measures that really control rent.
We need a big people power movement to change all this.
If you want proper rent controls that allow for downward adjustments on rents, please sign this petition. And then join the people’s movement to control rents.
