Rent Review 2018/19
We are writing to all our tenants to seek your views on proposals for the 2018/19 rent charges. As a housing co-operative, owned and controlled by our tenants, we depend on rental income to provide housing and deliver the services necessary to maintain and improve your home and the local environment.
The rental income that we receive is re-invested into our community to help achieve our purpose of “making a difference to our community”. We are currently seeking your views on how much your rent should increase by and we have selected 3 options for you to consider as follows:
3.2%, 3.5% or 4.0%
We have provided you with more information in our information leaflet on why we need to consider a rent increase.
We fully recognise that many of our tenants are coping with changes to their income with Welfare Reforms and for those tenants in employment who are also struggling to make ends meet as wages are not increasing. We would remind all tenants that we continue to provide a Money Advice Service based here at the Glenburn Centre if you need any assistance in maximising your income.
If you wish to discuss how your rent is set or have any comments on the proposed rent increase, please feel free to call me at the office or complete and return the consultation survey found here.
