Detail of outcome
The government consulted on how income thresholds should work beyond the levels set out at Budget 2015, the interaction with Housing Benefit, and sought evidence of likely administrative costs in operating the scheme.
This document summarises the consultation responses and sets out the government’s way forward as it seeks to implement the policy from April 2017.
This consultation asks for views on 2 aspects of the ‘pay to stay’ policy.
Firstly, it proposes a system of ‘tapers’ that would tie rent levels more closely to income. Secondly, it asks for views on the potential administration costs.
