      Christchurch, New Zealand

Because our city is in the grip of a rental crisis/nightmare. Rents are becoming out of control, landlords are increasing rent prices as they please and people are struggling to FIND homes firstly, struggling to afford the homes they have, having rents increased, having there houses sold, or even being in a financial position to even LOOK at the rental listings. Its out of control and NEEDS TO STOP

To:
Paula Bennett, Waitakere Electorate office
Christchurch City Council
Cap rental prices and raise the accommodation supplement rate

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Give the Christchurch people a break, if its not bad enough people have lost there homes through the quake. Now they have to pay higher prices just to live in the place they know as home.As for Paula Bennett she needs to get off her so called high horse and come back to reality, she seems to forget how she struggled all those years ago. Not just that she has to realize how things have got so much more expensive. GET RID OF PAULA BENNETT

      Rents are being put up to insane levels, power has gone up, phone bill is up, food prices always increasing and income is static whether wages or benefit - people are reaching breaking point. The first step is to cap rental prices to give people a chance to take stock and breathe
