We recently ran a poll of our members to see what social housing professionals thought the government would cap rents at.

Giving the option of 3%, 5%, 7% or other as per the consultation, the results were as follows:

3% – 25%

5% – 50%

7% – 20%

Other – 5%

We expect that the announcement will be made by the chancellor next week as part of the Autumn Statement. HQN will have a full round up of all the announcements and what they mean for the sector shortly after the statement.

If you need any help with stress testing or rent setting with these changes, please get in touch.
