In this study, we attempted to investigate the main factors responsible for high rent in the Bolgatanga Municipality of Ghana, assess the income levels of internal migrants, and the consequences of high rent on the migrants. The main questions the study proposes to address include what factors influence high rent in the Municipality, what is the relationship between income of the internal migrants and the rent in the municipality and lastly, what effect does the high rent has on the migrants? Using purposive sampling, and secondary data, a total of three hundred and forty-five (345) migrants and house owners from the Municipality and its environs were surveyed.
