The rent standard is for social landlords with general needs and sheltered housing.

It does not apply to:

  • extracare housing
  • supported housing
  • any housing which is not self-contained
  • housing let at intermediate or market rent levels
  • other specialised housing

Social landlords are responsible for setting rent for their own properties.
