East Devon has been able to purchase over 28 homes within East Devon from Estate Agents to increase its housing stock during the last financial year. East Devon is one of very few councils that still owns housing stock. These will be rented at ‘affordable rents’ (80% of market rent). Tenants still qualify for Housing Benefit. East Devon is well aware we have people in full time employment but because of low wages still qualify for Housing Benefit. Please make sure people check with our advisors who are now in Exmouth Town Hall. You can make an appointment.
