Surviving the Monopoly Rental Market
The fear of losing ones' home is a agonizing stressor especially for low/fixed income tenants (seniors and people with disabilities, single parents, part-time low wage earners) and those experiencing hourly cut-backs and job loss. Tenants live under constant threat of being priced out and or displaced due to no cause evictions, property sales and owner move-backs.
Survival Means Preparing for Relocation
Pat Murray, community leader in the brain injury survivor community shares her story of six years of housing displacement, resulting from high rent increases.
Commerical property owners, landlords, management companies have the upper hand on setting rent prices, rates of rent increases with full legislative sanctions for no holds barred on doubling and tripling rents. Tenants are doing their best to maintain stable housing in a marketplace where accelerated rent prices dominate and are increasingly overwhelming their income capacities, wreaking major havoc in their lives.
