Housing is a right not a luxury. My husband and I are current displaced and living with family after our landlord if almost 4 years said they wanted to sell the home. Turns out they didn’t sell and simply upped the rent. To move into another rental we were looking at paying $6-9K to move in between deposits and fees. We work, have kids and help take care of my disabled father. Renting used to be feasible when you either couldn’t or didn’t want to buy. Now renting is just as bad as buying with more and more landlords requiring higher credit scores and significant deposit fees, security deposits, first and last month rent. If we don’t fix this we will have more and more people who simply have nowhere to go.
