Every year we review how much rent you pay. We look at the money spent over the past year and calculate how much we will need to invest in our homes and run our services for the coming year, whilst making sure our rent remains affordable.
This year, our Board are proposing a rent increase based on the September 2021 rate of inflation Consumer Price Index (CPI) of 3.1%.
In July 2018 Ancho tenants voted overwhelmingly in favour of a new partnership with Cairn Housing Association. Increasing rents by 3.1% allows us to keep our promise made in the Rent Guarantee to increase rents by CPI only for the first five years, and deliver the accelerated investment commitments made in our partnership promises.
2021 has been an incredibly challenging year. If you are experiencing financial problems then your Housing Officer is here to help. The sooner we know, the sooner we can help. Please get in touch.
To have your say on the rent proposal, please email email@example.com or send us your comments through our feedback form. You can also call us on 01294 313121, or submit feedback through your My Ancho account. If you wish to give us feedback then please do so by 23 December 2021.
The Board will be meeting in January to look at your feedback to the rent review and make a final decision. We will write to all tenants to let them know the outcome. We will provide at least 28 days’ notice before the new rent is applied on 1 April 2022.
