Setting My Rent

Target rents

To calculate your rent, we have to use a method introduced by the Government in 2002 called ‘target rents’. This means that rents are  based on:

  • how much your home is worth
  • the average wage in the county you live in
  • the number of bedrooms in your home.


Calculating your rent

We calculate your rent based on the Government’s formula. You'll find out more information on this by visiting the DCLG website
