Re: Raising of maximum allowable ROI on rental property from 0.5 to 2%

Looking at it from a purely business viewpoint, the logic makes sense - nowhere else would you be able to rent an item for 1.75% of its value. But housing is a bit different due to the limited supply, so competition is limited and you could argue it isn't a normal market so pure market rates can't apply.

I can't see how it could be implemented without causing chaos if lots of landlords suddenly try to put rates up that much.

Also perhaps this impact is only because property prices are too high, but the result of this decision is likely to just be even higher prices!
