How Your Rent Is Set

Information on how rents are set

CRHA sets its rents in accordance with any regulatory or legislative requirements, while ensuring that our rental income is sufficient to cover our operating costs and that rents remain as affordable as possible.

CRHA charges two types of rents depending on when a property was built and how it was funded.

Social Rents  – are generally charged on properties built before 2014. These rents are set in accordance with Government guidelines.

“Affordable Rents” – are generally charged on new properties built since 2014.  These rents are set at up to 80% of gross market rents inclusive of service charges where these are applicable.
