Mole Hill Residents Facing Geographic Rent Increases

There’s more bad news for West End renters as another group of tenants are battling geographic rent increases.

The “low-end of market” residents of the Mole Hill Community Housing Society¬† were recently served with notice of extraordinary rent increase through the¬† RTO.

The society plans to increase rents over two years, with requested increases of up to 28% in the first year and 20% in the second.

If successful, these rent increases will un-house many long term residents. Mole Hill sets a cap on the household income of perspective applicants, a cap that has jumped in recent years – and so those who have lived on the block for any longer than 3 years are unlikely to be able to stay in the West End if evicted by higher costs.

Seafielders found a website made by one of the residents. She discusses the details of the Mole Hill rent increases.
