Our tenants asked us to give them an indication of what their rents are spent on. The chart below is simplified but gives an idea of our major spend areas.
Services may include gardening, lighting, heating and cleaning in communal areas and in sheltered/very sheltered schemes, maintenance of communal laundry equipment. Services vary from scheme to scheme because each scheme is different.
This is the cost of routine and planned maintenance i.e. keeping property in good repair.
This is administration and management costs involved in tenancy provision.
This is the cost of the decline in the value of property as a result of wear, tear and age.
We’ve created a handbook with the help of tenants, for tenants. It has been designed as a guide to refer to at the start, during and at the end of your tenancy.
We have over 1900 properties across North East Scotland, including general needs, amenity, sheltered, very sheltered, mid-market rent and shared ownership.
