    Many people renting in South Auckland should brace for a rent rise

    Many people renting in South Auckland should brace for a rent rise


    New rates bills begin hitting landlords' letter boxes next month.

    While the council's raising the overall rate by two and a half percent 43- percent of property owners will be paying more than that.

    The increase for nearly one in 10 owners is more than ten percent.

    Many of those larger increases are in south Auckland and west Auckland.

    Manukau ward Councillor Alf Filipaina says many people in his constituency are saying they can't afford it.

    He's telling them to talk to their landlord about what happens around any rates increase.
