Their rent bills have been inflated by greedy private landlords.
However greedy they are, they could not inflate rents if there were plenty of houses.
As it is, there are insufficient houses for all the people who need them, and the population is growing much faster than houses can be built.
Inevitably that forces up the rents and house prices, and greed is not the cause.
