Derbyshire rents to rise

Thursday, January 21st, 2010 in News, Residential

The local council in Derby is trying to increase council housing rents to align with other social housing landlords.

Vice-chairman of the panel John Newbold said: “We know as tenants we can’t change it, but we want to discuss it in view of the financial insecurity a lot of tenants are facing. In my view, the rise of 2.5% to 3% is looking good but there are other things we need to discuss, such as service charges.”

The Government wants local authorities and housing organisations to work towards similar rents to those of social landlords, which are traditionally higher than local authority charges.
