Minister to be grilled over decision to overturn Onchan rent cap

Mon, 15 Apr 2013

In tomorrow's sitting of Tnwald Social Care Minister Chris Robertshaw will be taken to task over his decision to overturn Onchan Commissioners' rent cap.

With rents increasing across the board, the commissioners took the move to try and cap any rises at 15%.

This was in an effort to protect those tenants who could have seen a jump of well over 30%.

The DSC's plan is for tenants to pay a rent that reflects their property, Onchan Commissioners fear that the financial burden could be too much for some.

It will be Onchan MHK David Quirk who asks the question to Minister Robertshaw in tomorrow's sitting.
