Shaked, Shaffir come to agreement on fair rental bill

June 1, 2016 17:06

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked submitted a version of the “fair rental bill” previously proposed by MKs Stav Shaffir (Zionist Union) and Roi Folkmann (Kulanu), to be brought to a Ministerial Committee for Legislation vote Sunday.

Unlike Shaffir’s version of the bill, the Justice Ministry proposal would not limit how often landlords can raise the rent for tenants, a move Shaked said will prevent an immediate rent hike and harm to the free market. The bill limits the down payment landlords can require, in relation to monthly rent, and sets minimum conditions for an apartment that can be rented, like standard electricity, light and sewage, as well as ventilation.
