32% rent increase for BBC One, BBC Radio Guernsey and BBC News

Cluhein Trubshaw, a finance worker originally from South Africa, moved her family over to Guernsey as she was recruited for the work opportunities, but is now being forced to leave the island after 16 months.

Her rent has been increased by 32% and she describes the difficulties trying to find a property in the housing and rental market, having a number of negative experiences, and feeling as if she will have to move to the UK.

The interview was broadcast multi platform, for TV on BBC One in the Channel Islands, on radio for BBC Radio Guernsey and I wrote an article for BBC News online.

After the interview was broadcast, Cluhein’s landlord got in touch who we also interviewed for her right of reply, she said local estate agents advised her to put the price up. We then interviewed local estate agents who said they may advise, but landlords are the ones who will ultimately make the final decision.

The interview was filmed by John Fernandez and kindly edited by Euan Duncan.
