Rent settlement extended

In a welcome move for many housing associations who are in the process of revisiting business plans, the Government confirmed yesterday that the existing social housing rent settlement in England will continue until April 2026, meaning that annual rents for 2025/26 (for social and affordable rents) can be increased by up to CPI plus 1%.

The announcement was included within a press release issued yesterday in relation to the new Consumer Standards and approach to the regulation of these Standards, which can be found here: New regime to deliver decent homes for social housing residents
