Mid-Market Rent

Mid-Market Rent is a form of affordable housing that allows tenants to pay rent levels below the normal private market rent level in the local area, although rents are higher than what a tenant would normally expect to pay in social housing. Rent levels are usually set at around 85% – 100% of the local housing allowance.

You can read a case study from one of our Mid Market tenants here.
