We are a very rich country arent we? I realise the distribution is not even and many dont feel this. Just saying over all. Add to this something like €125+ Billion in savings which rocketed up also during the pandemic

Looks like a few of the lads forgot to do the annual rent increase the last few years, and need a bit of a dig out.
This seems like a reasonable policy?

The current system means that landlords have a strong incentive to raise the rent every year. As it is, if the rent isn't raised, then it is lost.

The idea with the current system is to smooth out rents for tenants. It prevents a sudden massive increase in rents.
