Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission
For anyone who wants to give their thoughts about rent increases in 2015, the Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission is accepting submissions from the public.
Every year IRAC seeks submissions as it determines whether or not to allow rent increases.
Written presentations can be submitted to IRAC’s director of residential rental property and this year’s deadline for submissions is Aug. 29.
After the review for 2014, IRAC allowed a two per cent increase for heated premises, while rent for unheated premises and mobile homes in trailer parks was allowed to go up by one per cent.
When the commission sought submissions last year it received eight from tenants, one from a landlord and one from the anti-poverty group Alert.
