My daughter has been private renting for 6 months,

 

Today she mentioned that when she needs a repair doing a council van turns up. I searched on land registry to discover that she is renting her home from the council but paying private landlord rental fees.

 

How can they charge her considerably more for rent yet many houses in her street owned by the same council they are charging them tenants much less.

Hi Google "Social Housing" and "Affordable Housing". Social I think is self explanatory,Affordable is around 80% of Private Renting but is often nearer to 100%

Are you sure her LL is not sub-letting?

some concils rent buildings in the private sector and manage then in return for a reduced rent or a slice of the rent charged by the LL.

The other thing could be that her LL is subletting ( propably illegally) or that the building is a leasehold and the council is liable for certain parts.

these are things that she should have looked at before agreeing terms
