About Mid-Market Rent
Mid-Market Rent is affordable housing designed to meet the needs of households unlikely to be successfully housed by local authorities or Housing Associations due to pressure of housing supply.

Mid-Market Rent is a form of affordable housing for those in work. Properties have a lower rent charge than other parts of the private sector, and here at Home Group ours form part of our affordable housing portfolio.

As a Customer you will be given a Private Residential Tenancy. We will manage the repairs service and all other contracts such as grounds maintenance and stair cleaning.

The benefits of a Private Residential Tenancy:

•It gives you more security as a Customer – it’s an open ended tenancy, meaning home group can’t just ask you to leave because you’ve been in the property for a set length of time
•Protection from frequent rent increases- your rent can only go up once each year, and home group must give you at least three months’ notice of the increase
•Any rent increase can be referred to a rent officer, who can decide if its fair
•If you’ve lived in the property for more than 6 months, Home Group have to give you 84 days notice to leave (unless it’s because you’ve done something wrong)
•If you think you were misled into moving out, you can apply to the first tier tribunal for a “wrongful termination order”. If you get the order it can award up to 6 months’ rent in compensation
•Local authorities can apply to Scottish Ministers to cap the levels of rent increases in areas where rents are rising too much
