Fixed Term Rent Policy Questionnaire 2019

Closes 31 Jan 2020

Opened 2 Dec 2019

Overview

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

This survey should take you no longer than 5 minutes and 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 the 31 January 2020. We look forward to hearing from you.
