Loreburn is committed to keeping rents as low as possible whilst providing good value for money for our customers. As a non-profit making charitable organisation, any surpluses we make are reinvested in our existing housing, help fund new services and provide new affordable housing for rent. From 4 April 2016, rents are charged on a weekly basis.
Annually, the Management Committee considers our loan and debt position, our maintenance commitments, cashflow analysis and other costs before proposing a rent level. They do this in order to ensure the organisation is financially stable and viable. Customers are consulted on the proposed rent levels every year and after receiving their views and considering their feedback, the Committee make a final decision about what the rent levels will be for the following year.

Depending on where you live, in addition to your rent, you may also pay a service charge based on the actual costs of the services we provide you with. Service charges are reviewed each year taking into account the actual costs, the projected costs for the coming year and any surplus / deficit carried forward from the previous year.
Our aim is to keep service charges affordable whilst providing value for money.
