Your rent and service charges
Your rent pays for the housing management and repairs services we provide. The amount of rent you pay depends on the type of tenancy you hold.
We review the majority of our rents each year in April. Rent increases are worked out according to strict guidance, using a formula set by the Government. In 2017, the Government announced it would allow social landlords to increase their rents by a maximum of the Consumer Price Index (CPI) plus 1%, effective from 2020/21 and for the following four years, and this is the formula we use when reviewing the majority of our rents annually.
You may also have to pay a service charge for any services provided by Bucks Housing, such as cleaning communal areas or gardening. All service charges are based on cost and we consult residents on the services provided.
We send out a Rent Statement every three months. If you require a copy of your Rent Statement at another time, please contact the office.
