Detail

*The Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016 and regulations made under it (the legislation) prescribe rules about the rents that can be charged by registered providers of social housing during the period from 2016/2017 to 2020/2021. For the period that the rent under a tenancy of a registered provider’s social housing is to be governed by the legislation, the rent for that tenancy is not covered by the Rent Standard (which, for the avoidance of doubt, includes certain key requirements of the Rent Standard Guidance). Providers are expected to consult the legislation in order to establish how the rules apply to their stock, taking legal advice if they consider it necessary.
