Introducing a Living Rent

Implement a price cap on private rents to make housing more affordable to all, to ensure private landlords can not charge extortionate levels of rent causing people to be priced out of areas they have lived in all their lives.

Why is this important?

I'm 27 and I live in Brighton, where rent on a one bed can be £650-£750 per month. On my wages this is not affordable. The same is happening all over the country. It is making it harder for young people to be independent. Also capping rents would leave more disposable income to inject into our failing economy.
