Three-year rent freeze required for Dublin Bay North – Denise Mitchell TD

Denise Mitchell, Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Bay North, has today called on the Minister for Housing to introduce a three-year rent freeze, as proposed by Deputy Eoin O Broin.

Teachta Mitchell said;

“Rents are currently too high and we need to see a three-year rent freeze introduced.

“No one measure will tackle the crisis in the rental market and while a three-year rent freeze is necessary to stop rents rising further, we need to see a major investment in affordable cost rental housing by this government.

“The private sector has failed to provide the people of Dublin Bay North with affordable rents and this can be seen in the latest Daft.ie Report on rents, with people living in North Dublin City paying just under €2,000 a month.

“The Minister for Housing really needs to consider our proposal, as the current policies are just not working for renters; with rent pressure zones shown to be completely ineffective.

“We’ve asked for a rent freeze on a number of occasions as it is the only thing that will prevent the crazy rent increases we’ve seen in the last number of years.”
