It’s hard for renters
RE: “Cost of living to hit home,” ( Mt Druitt-St Marys Standard, August 5).
Paying a bond is hard for everyone.
It’s four weeks rent which is a fairly high amount of money, plus you have to have this upfront.
And every time you have to move, you hope that even though the place you moved out of is cleaner and in better condition than when you moved, that you will get your previously paid bond back.
Add to this the costs involved with moving and you are always behind the eight ball.
Real estate agents and landlords need to understand the financial pressure that they put many peo- ple under when they stuff good tenants around. JANELLE NICHOLLS,
