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.

    It’s such a shame that people are forced to never turn on heating or struggle with other bills because rent is taking too large a slice from our income. Something needs to be done and capped.

    I previously lived in Edinburgh but had to move away due to extrotionate rent prices. Many of my friends have also had to do the same.

    The housing bill’s formula for calculating maximum rent increases is much, much too generous. But it’s a step forward.
