Rent and other responsibilities

Rent and other responsibilities

Tenants pay a monthly rent to RBMHO. This is calculated as 10% of a households taxable income, with a minimum rent figure agreed annually by the Trustees. This is currently £192.50 pcm. Any change to the rent is implemented on 1 July each year. The Organsation looks after the property’s insurance, repairs and exterior maintenance, but tenants are responsible for maintaining the interior décor and garden as well as paying all normal outgoings such as Council Tax, water & sewage charges, gas, electric and telephone bills as well as contents insurance.

RBMHO aims to provide permanent homes with AssuredTenancies in England and Scotland, and Occupation Contracts in Wales. For married couples, all tenancies / contracts are on a joint basis and give a continuing right of occupation to a surviving spouse, with the reservation that the fundamental criterion of housing need would have to be re-established in the event of a re-marriage. Beyond this, housing cannot be made available to dependent relatives.

Sometimes circumstances alter and an existing home becomes unsuitable, in which case sympathetic consideration is given to rehousing, if required.

"We are so grateful to the Lord and to the RBMHS for providing us with this lovely bungalow.  It's at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and is just a few miles from several family members.  We love living so close to the sea and the South Downs.  Before we retired we had often wondered where we would end up living but could never have imagined it would be in such a great place - definitely our 'dream home."
