Property investors have been vocal in their opposition to new housing policy announced by the government, and say rent hikes are an inevitable consequence.

Some renters are already reporting increases since last week's announcement. Advocacy group Renters United says it backs caps on what can be charged.

Ashok Jacob is Renters United spokesperson.
