Rent Increase 2019/20 Consultation

Closed 26 Oct 2018

Opened 7 Sep 2018

Overview

We want you to have your say on the level of Falkirk Council's proposed rent increase for 2019/20.  As our tenant, your rent goes towards paying for a whole range of services that directly affect you.  That's why your opinion is important to us.

Tell us what you think and your Housing Service will donate £1 to the Trussell Trust Foodbank (Falkirk Council area) for every survey returned. 

We will also post this survey out to all tenants.

Why We Are Consulting

You have the right to be consulted on any rent increases that Falkirk Council proposes. 

Your rent increases each year, as we need to ensure that the rent we collect is enough to pay for the costs of maintaining and managing over 16,000 homes.  Rent increases are necessary to meet increased running costs due to factors such as inflation and interest rates.

Additionally, increases in rent help to provide income to continue to invest in improving our homes to meet quality and energy efficiency standards and to build new homes.

For further information on how the information you provide will be used, please read our privacy notice.

What Happens Next

The results of the consultation will be presented to a future meeting of Falkirk Council, where the final decision on a rent increase for 2019/20 will be made.

A future edition of 'Tenant Talk' will outline the results of the survey and how much was donated to the Trussell Trust Foodbank.
