    There is a plan to force households that earn more than £60,000 to pay market rent. Therefore, high-earning social tenants are to be legally prompted to state their incomes.

    According to the plans made by the Communities and local Government department last week:

    “The government will enshrine in law that the onus is on tenants who earn above the threshold to reveal their earnings to ensure they are making a fairer contribution.

    The CLG's response to a consultation on the ‘pay to stay' plans confirms the government wants to press ahead with the controversial scheme, and that £60,000 will be the cut off point.”

    Although, most people are against this move by the government,

    The Communities and local Government department said:

    “We have carefully considered responses to this consultation, and we recognise that there are some specific issues to be addressed in implementing the policy, such as how income is to be defined.

    It said it will provide further details on the intended policy in a forthcoming consultation.”

    According to Inside Housing:

    “Social landlords will be expected to use the extra money made from the policy to fund new affordable housing.”
