Rent consultation

Description

Tenant participation is about tenants having real opportunities to contribute to and influence all decisions relating to their homes and living conditions. We want to hear from you .......

Aberdeen City Council is currently consulting all tenants on the possible introduction of a new fixed term rent policy.

The rent that you pay to Aberdeen City Council is held in an account known as the Housing Revenue Account (HRA). The money in this account can only be invested in housing services such as repairs, improvements, housing management and building new properties.

Currently, rent is set at the Council budget meeting each March, which can make budgeting challenging for both tenants and the council. The advantage of a long-term rent policy is that it allows tenants and the Council to plan ahead financially, knowing what the rent increase will be for a number of years

We don’t want you to miss the opportunity to have your say about this policy, and you can do so by completing our short on-line survey. There is a prize draw where 4 lucky tenants can win £250 each in shopping vouchers. In order for your opinion to count we need to receive it by Friday 8th November 2019. We look forward to hearing from you.

Please see our tenant consultation privacy notice for further details about how your information will be used.
