Affordable Rent Setting Data For Housing Associations - 80% Market Rents

To bid successfully for capital funding under the Government's National Affordable Housing Programme, your Housing Association must move quickly in order to assess accurately your capacity to generate increased rental income from the new affordable rents.

The new intermediate (affordable rent) tenure allows associations to charge up to 80% of market rents. Comprehensive, accurate, postcode-based, current market rent data is therefore absolutely vital in making that initial capacity assessment.

Looking ahead, how will you ensure that your future rent setting complies with the Government's directive on affordable rents?

Thankfully Home.co.uk can provide you immediately with the data you need right now to make that crucial initial assessment with confidence, and going forward to set rents accurately in accordance with the regulator's guidelines.

Home.co.uk, founded in 1996, is the UK's most Comprehensive Property Search Engine and therefore the best source of current rental pricing in the UK. We can provide detailed rent-setting data for any UK towns or postal districts tailored to your exact requirements.
