Changes in the amount of rent you pay

Rent usually increases at the beginning of April each year in line with guidance by the National Assembly. We will give you four weeks written notice of the rent increase.

If you receive housing benefit, the amount you pay each week may change due to your housing benefit being reviewed or altered if, for example, your income has changed.

Difficulty in paying your rent?

A condition of your tenancy is to pay your rent on time. We depend on the income from rents to provide services to all our tenants.

If you are having real problems in paying your rent, we will do all we can to help. You can also get advice from Shelter, Citizens Advice Bureau, or from a solicitor.
