Launceston council house rents set to rise 48p on average

Council house tenants in Launceston are set to see a 48p per week average rent rise in the next financial year.

Average rents in what is known as the North East Cornwall Landlord Services area were £58.02 in 2009-10, but this figure masks a bit of a mess as rents started off at a much higher level and were cut part way through the year.

In the coming year, the average rent in NECLS area will be £58.50 although individual property rents may go up or down by more than the average and actual rents will depend on the size of the property.

The only down side is that, of the three council house areas in Cornwall, ours will see the highest rent increases.
