Rents will still be set in exactly the same way as council rents.
As you will be living in a newer property with a higher value – your rent could increase – as council level rents are in part calculated using the value of the property itself. Any increase in rents will be phased in over 5 years and you would still be able to apply for Housing Benefit to cover the rent.
There is more information in the council’s Key Guarantees.
