In the last 3 years in Malta the rent I have paid has increased 50% and that includes having to downsize to a 1 bedroom flat.
My rent now takes 49% of my income.
This has become unsustainable unless my salary increases substantially.
We the undersigned request the Maltese Government to regulate the rental market to ensure that Maltese and foreign tenants are paying a fair rent.
It may mean classifying properties but rent for normal workers should be fair.
Furthermore any future rent rises should be limited to a formula linked to the rate of inflation.
The Regulate the Rental Market in Malta petition to Government legislators was written by Graig Willmott and is in the category Residential Disputes at GoPetition.
