How is the rent on my property set?

Bassetlaw District Council sets your rent.  All councils use the same way of working out rents by using a Government formula.  Your Rent is based on the following:-

  • Average Earnings - Lower average local earnings will mean that a tenant living in Bassetlaw will pay less rent than a tenant living in London
  • Property Values - A tentant living in an area where property values are high will pay more rent than a person living in an area where values are lower
  • Number of Bedrooms - The more bedrooms your property has, the higher the rent
