Our aim is to charge rents that people on a low income can afford, whilst maintaining high standards in our services and properties.
Each year we set our rents in accordance with our rent policy.
We consult with tenants about any proposed changes and these are then approved by Govan Housing Association’s Management Committee. We write to all tenants giving 28 days’ notice if there are to be any changes (these usually take effect as of 28 April each year).
