Rent Consultation 2024-25

Rent consulation 24 25 graphic detail

We are asking for Prospect tenants’ views on this proposal. Last year we consulted on a proposal to link the rent increase to the inflation rate with a cap of 4% each year until 2025. However, until October 2023, inflation had been higher than 6% since February 2022, and this means that costs have been increasing at higher rate than the income we are receiving from rents. This is having a significant impact on our ability to invest in all the properties now and in the future.

We need to make sure that Prospect continues to have a strong financial footing to make sure we can navigate economic ups and downs. Therefore, we are asking for thoughts on an increase of up to 6% this year. If we can keep it lower than 6%, we will do.

Find out more here about this proposal, including how Prospect rents compare with other local landlords and how the rent money is spent.
