Rent review postponed to support residents

Link Wentworth’s rent policy sets out a twice-yearly rent review for all social housing tenancies. To support our residents affected by COVID-19 and to prevent any ongoing hardship, we postponed the September 2021 rent review.

Although the review process is now underway, new rent will not be payable until the new year with the exception of any changes in circumstance. The March 2022 review will go ahead as planned, which means there will be less than six months between reviews.

A reminder that if you have returned to work since restrictions have eased, you need to update your income with us. Please complete one of the below forms within 28 days of returning to work.
