Council Housing - Rent, repairs and managing your tenancy
Rent Review 2020
From 6 April, the rent council tenants pay will change. For most of our tenants, this means a 2.7% increase. We have written to all tenants advising them of this change. If you haven’t received a letter, please call 01908 252937, option 1 as soon as possible.
On average, a tenant living in a three bedroom house will pay £2.55 more a week.
If your rent is paid by Housing Benefit, any changes will be automatically updated on your rent account, you do not need to contact us. You will be sent a separate letter from housing benefit confirming your entitlement.
Please note, if you are already claiming UC, you are responsible for updating your claim on your personal UC Journal with any changes to your rent and service charges.
