How your rent is spent*

From each pound:

  • 16p - day-to-day repairs and planned maintenance
  • 21p - major repairs
  • 10p - housing management
  • 3p - rent collection
  • 7p - communal services
  • 8p - private finance initiative
  • 34p - interest and debt costs

*In 2012 the government run funding system for housing services ended and was replaced with a new system of self-financing. As part of this process all Councils had to take on a share of the debt held by central government, and it is also standard practice to borrow funding for short term projects. Healthy Business plans budget to pay back this debt in 30 years, and this part of the budget funds the payments required to service this debt.
