Option 6: freeze rents for a few years

The Government froze rents when Aotearoa went into COVID-19 lockdown, but the freeze has ended and rents are rising again. Aotearoa is in a housing crisis and so rents could be frozen again for a period of time. Rents could be frozen nationwide, or in the least affordable areas to stop them becoming worse, or in areas where rents are rising much faster than wages.

A quick rent freeze could be applied in the short term, while some of the other long-term options are put in place.
