Double-digit rent increases

 

A chara, – Your newspaper would have come closer to the truth of the situation if it had written “Landlords continue to raise rents by double-digit percentages” rather than “Rents continue to rise by double-digit percentages” (“Dublin renters paying ¤156 more a month than last year”, Business, December 13th).

Rent does not exist as an independent self-raising agent. – Yours, etc,
