Stop London Rents Soaring Out Of Control

Many Londoners cannot afford the rents they are paying and it is spiraling out of control. Whilst the London candidates for mayors argue about the best way to build new properties they are missing a big solution for the majority who are renting - cap rental prices.


Whilst building more properties in the long term arguably may help rent prices stabilize, there is no short and medium term solutions in place to stop rent prices soaring out of control.


Last year legislation was passed capping rent prices in Berlin as they were facing exactly the same problems. Today this piece of legislation is a hailed success for the majority of those who can now afford to live in Berlin.

With the coming local elections housing is the hot topic. Let’s get this sorted now - it's worked in Berlin, why can't it work here?
