Tenants of North Hertfordshire Homes will see their rent go up by 2.2 per cent next month.

The rise will mean the average rent of a three-bed house in Letchworth will increase from £105.88 to £108.18 a week.

Director of finance Alan Park said: “Overall inflation has been low and social rent rises must copy that. However affordable the rent may seem compared to the private market, we know that some tenants struggle to pay it.

“We would urge them to talk with their North Hertfordshire Homes neighbourhood officer or go to the Citizens Advice Bureau if they need help.”
