YEN.com.gh recently carried out a survey on its Facebook platform to find out from Ghanaians how much would be reasonable to spend on a chamber and hall each month. Many voiced their opinions, but a recurring amount of GH₵300 was mentioned.
Ghana's housing deficit stands at a whopping 1.8 million units, meaning landlords have the liberty to charge as high as they want because people will have no option other than to take the property.
Many have called on the government to regulate the rental sector to prevent landlords from charging one or two years' rent advance so that more people can rent a home.
Places like East Legon, Cantonments, Dzorwulu and Spintex can have rent prices for a chamber and hall go as high as any amount between GH₵1000 and GH₵1,500.
