High Income Social Tenants – Pay to Stay consultation



This briefing covers two housing consultations; the most recent , the “Pay to Stay” consultation concerns the government’s desire to enable social landlords to charge high earning tenants a market or near market rent. The consultation closing date is 12 September 2012.

The second consultation concerns the circumstances under which an offer of private rented accommodation is not suitable for discharge of duty under homelessness legislation. The consultation period has ended but we have included comment on it in this briefing as it will be a significant change when it is finally introduced.

This briefing will be of interest to all local authorities with housing duties and to councillors with housing responsibilities in their local authority or as board members of registered social landlords.
