We are asking Edinburgh City Council to Implement a Rent Pressure Zone across the city to stop sky-high rents driving people into poverty.

 

Renters in Edinburgh are struggling. Year in, year out rents go up far faster than wages, and it is reaching a breaking point. Edinburgh City Council has the power to designate areas as so-called ‘rent pressure zones’ and bring in rent controls, to stop landlords ripping tenants off for poor-quality housing. It’s time for them to use these powers.
