Vermont's rental housing crisis: the landlords' perspective
Vermont's housing shortage has turned affordable, well-maintained rental properties into the Holy Grail. Meanwhile, Vermonters who have managed to find rental houses or apartments are experiencing rent hikes or even eviction notices, as landlords look to recoup losses sustained during the eviction moratorium.
The situation has led to some bad blood between renters and landlords.
Over the course of two shows, Vermont Edition will explore the rental housing crisis. First up: landlords, and the challenges they say they're facing.
Our guests are:
- Tyler Maas, director of programs and Housing Development for the Vermont State Housing Authority's Emergency Rental Assistance Program
- Jo Ann Troiano, executive director of the Montpelier Housing Authority
- Angela Zaikowski, director of the Vermont Landlords Association
