Rent changes from April 2020
Changes to rent prices have been announced by central government. Because of this, your rent may go up slightly in April.
Rent increases have been frozen since 2016 and for the last four years rents have dropped by one per cent each year. This year, will be the first time since then that there will be a small increase which will happen from 1 April 2020 and will be no more than one per cent more than the consumer price index.
The consumer price index is calculated each year to show inflation across the country. It is currently 1.7 per cent. We understand that any rent increase can be worrying, and we have a dedicated page on our website to answer your questions.
