As stated in the SPG Project for Affordable Housing and Sustainability, the GLA generally expects the supply of affordable housing for build-to-rent developments to include a discounted market rent, managed by the Build to Rent provider and delivered without subsidy. The mayor would prefer that the discounted market rent always be at LLR level, but the GSP also provides details on other options. Rents could be set at the llR level at the beginning of each lease, or the discount on market rents could be set at a rate corresponding to the LLR rate for the first lease, which would then apply to the current market price for development at the beginning of each new lease. In both cases, rent increases should be limited to the rate of growth of the CPI in leases. For too long, Londoners have been forced to pay rental fees every time they return home, and even when they renew their leases. From June 1, 2019, the effective date of the Rental Fees Act, it is illegal for a rental agent to charge you a fee if you rent a new property or renew your tenancy. There may also be additional repair areas described in your rental agreement, for which your landlord is responsible – please check your lease for more details. Take a look at our available properties and look for the likely rent for the type of property you want, and remember that the majority exclude municipal tax and electricity bills in addition to the monthly rent. This is an important factor you should consider, as the majority of agents require you to pass a benchmark exam before confirming a rental agreement on behalf of the landlord. Disputes If your landlord does not consider a repair need that is described in your rental agreement or that is included in the general legal obligations for repair, consult an experienced advisor – please see the “Legal Advice” section below for more information on how to get in touch with one of them. It is not advisable to withhold your rent or make your own rent for repair work, as this can lead to the landlord taking you to court for rent arrears. The houses are offered on rentals of at least three years. Tenants are helped save and have the opportunity to buy their home during their lease on the basis of a common property.
They will also benefit from additional priority for other flatshares throughout London. When your rental ends, we will contact you 2 months before the expiry date to confirm if you wish to renew or agree on holiday dates and leave so that the apartment can be put on the market. On the day of your departure, you need to make sure that the property is completely empty and professionally cleaned. The managers will then meet you in the accommodation and go through the check-in inventory, agree on all the points and collect the keys before your departure. All agreed deductions are then processed via the DPS and the balance will be refunded directly to you by the DPS. . . .
