    Prince Charles accused of over-charging rents

    Lord Berkeley is demanding an independent review of the Duchy's housing policy after it emerged the estate, which provides the Prince with a multi-million pound income, is sometimes charging almost double what council tenants pay.

    Charles prides himself on the principle that the Duchy offers accommodation for "local people at local prices".

    However, the latest figures from the Council of the Isles of Scilly, where the Duchy has 700 tenancies, show that his tenants are charged an average of £130 a week, compared to £70 for council tenants and £100 for those in housing association accommodation.

    The statistics come from Richard McCarthy, chairman of the Community Housing Association and secretary of the Duchy Tenants Association.

    He said the local authority has some of the poorest people in the UK, with the fourth lowest level of income.

    Learn Change and Adapt ?????

    All comments are for casual information purposes only. If you wish to rely on any advice I have given please ensure you obtain independent specialist advice from a third party. No liability is accepted for comments made.

    Some 75% of social tenants are HB claimants though (EHS 2017).

    We have had over 40 yrs of needs based tenancy allocation in SRS - so only the relatively destitute households get a look in for new tenancies - hence the lower than average household incomes.

    To be fair as much as i would have enjoyed them saying "has one tried living in Kensington? Our rent is very reasonable..." followed by do you have any cake... 

    They did have to show sympathy.
