Hello everyone, How do landlords with long term tenants achieve the best rents when they let to tenants receiving Universal Credit?
I generally keep my rents low for existing tenants.
If they are paying the rent and looking after the property I’m happy and for peace of mind I’m happy to reward them for my peaceful life.
Many of them have been there for 5 years, some are over 10 years.
So with rents moving up significantly mainly due to the Governments own policies, I’ve noticed that my HB tenants were a long way adrift on the published BRMA rents.
Thankfully, my very easy solution was to serve a rent increase on my tenant and after he sent it to the council my rent was increased with no cost to my tenant.
My question is, can I do the same for Universal Credit applicants?
Do they use the same BRMA website rent values?
