There are calls for a rethink in the way rents are calculated in Jersey.
It comes after Andium Homes announced above-inflation increases for tenants, as directed by the States.
Jersey Citizens Advice has written to the States' Housing Policy Development Board to say the formula that is used to calculate rents is flawed.
Rents in Jersey are typically in line with the Retail Price Index (RPI), a calculation that measures the rate of inflation. This year RPI was set at a rate of 2.8%.
In Jersey, private rental costs are used to help calculate the RPI rate. Jersey Citizens Advice argue that this is unfair as it means some renters will end up paying more than the market value of houses.
Jersey Citizens Advice are now campaigning for a RPI rate that does not include rental costs in order to provide a 'fairer measure for landlords to measure their rent increases'.
