Paying House or Garage Rent
How Rent is Calculated
The council sets its rents in line with Government policy and are reviewed on an annual basis. We will write to you 4 weeks before your rent is due to be changed - this letter will let you know what your new weekly rent figure will be from the first week in April each year.
From 2016 to 2020, social landlords have had to reduce their rents by 1% each year. From 2020, rents will be raised again annually, however the rise will be restricted to CPI (Consumer Price Index) + 1% for 5 years. The rise for 2020-21 is therefore expected to be 2.7%.
If you have any questions about how rent levels are set or how much you need to pay, please contact the Housing Income Team on 01536 410333.
