Over the last three years garage rents in Watford have increased by 60% from £55.00 per month to now £92.00 per month Watford Community Housing Trust keep puting the rent up by 20% per year and yet we get no extras for this. This can not continue to happern no one gets a 20% wage increase these days and people on a pension will soon not be able to afford a garage. They have done this despite complaints last year from tenants about the high rents, rents should go up in line with the retail price index, which are way behind this figure more like 3%. It has been noted that they call it a commercial rate compared with yellow box who cover your goods with Insurance and have 24 hour security and lighting none of which a trust lock up has. If you have been affected by this rent increase and do not agree with it please sign this as if all of us object together we will have more of a say to get them reduced to a fair rent for a garage in Watford. If we do not fight this now next year we will be paying over £100.00 per month for a garage. It looks like there aim is to make garage tenents pay for housing repairs as they say if you do not like it give the garage up. Once no one can afford them they will knock them down to build more houses on and the roads will not be able to cope with the extra vehicles. They claim there is a waiting list for garages I know of many empty ones near me if they were to charge £60.00 per month they may not have any empty ones, which makes good business sense to get income from all your stock. They say they are a non profit making trust, but they must make a good profit from there garages with 600 garages all let at £92.00 per month they stand to make £55,200 per month £662,400 per year and they would only spend less than £100,000 on maintainance if that. So if you are a tenent please sign up to save our garages.
