Rent - Lincolnshire Housing Partnership


Whether you’re struggling to pay, need support and advice, want to find out how it is calculated or ways to pay – you’ll find lots of useful information in this section.

We rely on you paying your rent regularly and quickly so that we can pay for housing management costs and for repairs and improvements to our properties, including your own.

The amount you pay is set at the beginning of your tenancy and is reviewed annually at the beginning of April using government policy guidelines.

All LHP properties are subject to Council Tax charges. For more information about Council Tax and to find out which Council Tax band applies to a property please contact the relevant local authority.

Rent calculation

If you are on a 48 week tenancy this means your annual rent is calculated over 48 weeks and not 52 and such there are four weeks in a year that we do not charge your rent account.

If you are up-to-date with your rent payments and paying satisfactorily in advance, you will not be required to make any payments over the four rent free weeks.

However, if you are in arrears with your rent, you must continue to make your agreed payments during these weeks. The bonus of doing this is that everything paid will be taken fully from your arrears and your debt will reduce faster.

The rent-free weeks for 2023/24 are weeks commencing:

  • 18 December 2023
  • 25 December 2023
  • 18 March 2024
  • 25 March 2024

Annual Rent Review

Every year in April, we review our social housing rent charges in line with government policy. The government sets a percentage increase for rent for the year ahead, and applies to all customers in social rented homes. Here, you can learn more about how we calculate this increase.
