The interest rate used to set the reference rate is the average rate on outstanding mortgage loans. This rate rose from 1.69% at 30 September 2023 to 1.72% on 31 December 2023. The average actual rate was then rounded to the nearest quarter of a percent, taking 1.72% to 1.75%.

The system of rent reference interest rates was introduced in 2008. Since then it has fallen from 3.5% to 1.25% before rising to 1.75%.

The next rental reference rate calculation is due on 1 June 2024 when it will likely remain at 1.75%.
