Rent Survey 2019/20 for tenants of Knowes Housing Association
Please complete the following Rent Consultation Survey for 2019/20. For your response to be considered you will need to complete your name and address details at the end. This will ensure that we do not include duplicate returns or responses from customers who are not tenants of Knowes. This form should be completed by the named tenant in the household – joint tenants may complete one survey each.
Please complete and return by 14th January 2019. All entries received before the closing date will be entered into a prize draw with a chance to win £50 in vouchers.
This year the Association is providing tenants with options to consider. These are as follows;
Option 1 - From 1/4/19 the Association requires to increase its rent by a minimum of 2.8% which will allow us to continue to deliver the services that we currently offer you.
An example of a rent increase of 2.8% on a rent of £310 per month would result in a new rent of £318.68 per month.
Option 2 – We are also consulting on an option where we can introduce the additional service of an Estate Caretaker who will deliver a number of services that will not only enhance the environment but will deal with a number of estate management issues for tenants. To allow this service to be introduced we would ask tenants to consider a 3.6% increase in their rents.
An example of a rent increase of 3.6% on a rent of £310 per month would result in a new rent of £321.16.
The Association would also like to hear your views on whether we should consider another amount either above or below the 2.8%. A rent increase of less than 2.8% would result in a reduction in the services that we can provide. There is a box at the end of this survey where you can place your views and what services you think we can improve on or reduce.
The following gives you an opportunity to provide us with an idea of the preference that you would like us to take forward.
