'Fair rents' were first introduced in the Rent Acts 1965, to provide a system of rent regulation and residential security of tenure. This research into valuing for fair rents finds practices that are confused, misguided and inconsistent between different parts of the country. A more rational approach to valuation is illustrated through worked valuation examples, but the report recommends other more radical changes to the fair rent system. The study is based on a thorough review and critical analysis of the legislative background, case law, housing market theory and valuation practice. Case studies of fair rent appeals to rent assessment panels are used to explore valuation practice, including implications for the Maximum Fair Rent Order 1999. As a case study of housing regulation and a practical guide to valuing fair rents, the report makes essential reading for valuation practitioners, regulated tenants and landlords, members of the rent service and housing policy makers.
