How rents are set

Please note: if you are a home owner, a resident in an almshouse, or a tenant on a six-month assured shorthold tenancy who has paid a deposit, this section may not apply to you.

We follow rent setting and change guidance issued by the social housing regulator in full. 

Rent increases

Sometimes, we have to increase rents to cover our costs. When that happens, we always give at least four weeks' notice - this generally means that if rents have to go up in April, we'll write to tell you about this before the end of February. Some tenants, such as those on secure tenancies, have their rent capped at levels set by the regulator.
