When we look at increasing rents for council homes, we ask our tenants to give us their views. We must ask our tenants under the Housing (Scotland) Act 2001.
We are currently consulting with tenants on increasing rents for the next 3 years - 2021 to 2024. You can take part in our current rent increase consultation at the following link:
As a council tenant, you can give us your views through our online form or by using one of the consultation options publicised by us each year. You can find out about this, or other ways of getting involved, on our Customer Involvement pages.
In previous years, tenants have told us the following information is important to them:
- How our rent levels compare with other social landlords
- The quality of our housing
- How well we perform as a landlord
- Why we are increasing the rent
- What rent money is spent on and how this compares to other social landlords
You can download our previous rent consultation results below:
