    in the time of rising property prices and rental costs

    The "rent-to-buy" scheme will attract people who have no intention to buy homes but just want to rent the flats at a constant rental within 5 years in the time of rising property prices and rental costs.

    What I mean is that some people want to rent the flats at a subsidized rent when rents and flat prices keep soaring. Is the phrase properly used? should "time" be substituted by "times".

    Thanks so much!

    Just because the monthly rental rate is fixed not indicate that they are subsidized.
