    We're property managers approved to take on NRAS properties. As some of you might know, after 4 years the NRAS Consortium organises a licensed valuer to go through and advise what the rent should be for the units.

    One of the units we manage just came up for this. The valuation came in $5 a week lower so we are forced to do a lease renewal at that amount to remain compliant (and non compliance means the owner doesn't get their $10k pa).

    The guy I deal with manages the PM's across SA and QLD and was saying all of them were coming in lower.

    This is one of the dangers of being in a government ran system instead of on the free market. Our normal (non-nras) properties we could at least keep them the same rent or negotiate a lesser increase if the market was poor (and I'm not convinced that it is).

    @D.T. Do you know how the Non NRAS properties that must be rented under the "Affordable Housing NSW" works?

    Is it the same as NRAS, except you don't get a rebate?
    (ie must go to an approved property manager that can take on Affordable housing etc)

    I think DHA houses are subject to rental reviews also.
    Rents can go up or down.
