Rental Policy: How much rent will be charged?

Market rent for Exmouth Service Worker Accommodation properties are assessed by an independent valuer on an annual basis. If there are significant changes in the Exmouth housing market, an independent valuation can be conducted sooner if recommended by the Allocations Advisory Committee or the Housing Authority.

Rent for individual service workers will be charged the lesser of either:

  • 30% Gross Assessable Household Income as specified by the property and tenancy manager; or
  • Market rent.

Businesses employing service workers will be charged market rent. These businesses may choose to subsidies the rents to their employees, but cannot charge more than what is paid to the property and tenancy manager.
