We will give you one calendar month’s notice, in writing, of any changes to your rent or service charges.
Your rent will change every year in line with the government guidelines for housing associations.
In recent years, your rent has increased every year based on the consumer prices index (CPI), plus 1%.
The Government has now asked housing associations such as Platform to reduce rents over a period of four years. More information on the new rent for your home is given as part of the annual review of rents and service charges.
We will make any changes to your service charges at the same time as your rent changes. We are always trying to improve the way we manage the services we provide, so these charges can sometimes go down.
If you have any questions about the changes to your rent or service charges, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0333 200 7304 and select 'option 3'.
You can pay your rent or view a rent statement at any time using Your Platform
