Minister Considers Extending Rent Pressure Zones Countrywide
Last updated on
The Housing Minister says he’s considering extending Rent Pressure Zones to cover the entire country.
Currently 24 percent of the country isn’t in an RPZ, meaning rents can increase at the same rate as inflation while those living within zones can’t have their rent increased by more than 2 percent.
Darragh O’Brien says he’s seeking legal advice to extend the zones further but that supply is the biggest issue.
