“BMA, in plot with different diggers saw this rental increment event and they didn’t care for it, so they concluded that they wouldn’t lease anything, so throughout the previous three months they have barely leased a property in Moranbah,” he said.
“Rents have begun to drop and there are relatively few properties being sold at this very moment, which is driving the costs down.
“On the off chance that you have as of now purchased a place it’s still contingent, then we would propose to our customers that they either haul out of the arrangement or they decrease the value that they bought by transaction.”
