Lambeth Housing tenants should be receiving a letter informing them that the 3% rent reduction will be implemented in their November rent accounts.
As the rent reduction is being backdated to April, this means the average tenant will be receiving more than £50 as a welcome bonus as winter sets in.
Lambeth residents got this because of tough and persistent lobbying of government from Labour's councillors and MPs.
Councillor Mark Harrison said, 'it's good to see the reduction we won during the Prince's ward by-election in June being implemented.'
