The total cost of renting our flats is made up of two elements:
- Monthly rental
- Monthly service charge
The rent is based on the size of your flat (per square metre). Flat sizes vary between:
- Muir House studio flats – between 30 – 38 sqm
- Muir House one bedroom flats – between 35 – 55.2 sqm
- Priest Croft flats – between 34.6 – 52.4 sqm
As general guidance our rents and service charges in 2023 vary based on size per month as follows:
|Cost type||Muir House||Priest Croft|
|Monthly Rent||£354 – £477||£408 – £478|
|Monthly Services||£186 – £203||£154 – £219|
Yes, some of our costs can be covered by housing benefits (others are not applicable). Rent and services are eligible for Housing Benefit, but support, water and heating are not.
Council tax is also the tenants responsibility (our flats are all in Council Tax band A)
So if you get some form of housing benefit currently then that may cover some of the cost of living at MuirCroft.
