Isle of Man public sector housing tenants face 1.9% rent rise

People living in public sector housing in the Isle of Man will face a 1.9% rent rise from 1 April.

The weekly increases, which are based on property size, will range from £1.19 to £2.01.

The Department of Infrastructure (DOI) said the gap between funding for the housing and the rental income received was “likely to exceed £6m a year”.

DOI minister Ray Harmer said balancing the cost of the housing with the impact of rents on tenants was “difficult”.

The department would work with the island’s local authorities to move to a four-to-five-year periodic rental setting system in future, he added.
