Does the rent get cheaper over time?
There are a few factors to consider when it comes to the rent price.
1) The value of the property
2) The market rental yield
3) Your stake in the property
The rent is calculated based on a combination of the three.
Assuming the market rental yield for the property stays the same, the two competing factors will be the value of the property rising over time and your stake in the property.
We revalue the properties every 12 months, so if you buy more of the house monthly, the rent will get cheaper over the course of the year, but if in 12 months the value of the property goes up, so too will your rent. The opposite is also true of course, if the value of the property goes down your rent will get cheaper.
