MSP backs Liv­ing Rent cam­paign

The Oban Times - - News -

GREEN MSP John Fin­nie wants the Scot­tish gov­ern­ment to im­pose a rent cap to en­cour­age peo­ple to move into High­lands and Is­lands.

Back­ing the Liv­ing Rent Cam­paign, this week the MSP said: ‘Our rents are soar­ing, driven by buy-to-let and hol­i­day-homes.

‘The re­sult is poverty, de­pop­u­la­tion, and des­per­ate ten­ants forced to ac­cept poor- qual­ity homes or un­scrupu­lous land­lords.’
