How your rent is calculated

We use a points weighting system to determine our rents

We operate a points weighting system, with rents based predominantly on size and type.

Rent levels vary in accordance with the points value. This ensures that tenants in smaller houses with fewer amenities pay lower rents than those in larger houses with more.

In addition, a 20% premium will be applied to the rents of all new houses built by the Council. This reflects their superior standard of amenity and brings new build rents more into line with other local housing providers.

How do our rents compare?
