How your rent is calculated

We use a points weighting system to determine our rents

From April 2020, the way we determine your rents changed and now they are based solely on the property size (number of bedrooms) and property type (flat, maisonette, terraced detached etc)

Full detail of this new rent structure can be found here New rent structure - effective from 6 April 2020

Rent levels vary in accordance with the points value that are assigned against each property size/property type combination. This ensures that tenants in smaller houses with fewer amenities pay lower rents than those in larger houses with more.

In addition, a 20% premium will be applied to the rents of all new houses built by the Council. This reflects their superior standard of amenity and brings new build rents more into line with other local housing providers.

How do our rents compare?

North Lanarkshire Council set its rent increase for 2020/21 at 5%. This means an average rent increase of £3.34 per week from 6 April 2020. The average weekly rent in North Lanarkshire of £70.77 is fourth lowest among Scottish councils and approximately 7.73% below the national local authority average (£76.67).
