A tenants' advocate is calling for temporary villages for earthquake refugees to be available for any Christchurch people needing short term housing.
The Department of Building and Housing has set up two villages for people who have had to temporarily leave earthquake-damaged homes.
Tenants Protection Association spokesperson Helen Gatonyi says the influx of homeowners to the rental market has resulted in tenants being kicked out as landlords seek to increase prices.
She says establishing more temporary villages that are open to anyone would help ease the problem.
The Department of Building and Housing says a third village will be opened in eastern Christchurch by July .
