We’re looking for affordable rental accommodation of different sizes to meet the needs of a wide range of tenants looking for help with housing.

We give landlords an introduction to prospective tenants and, if a letting is agreed, landlords can access a range of incentives depending on the size, area and rent for the property.

If you are a managing agent or own a property that you want to offer to a client of the council, please contact us to get more information about the scheme.

The Private Rented Scheme can benefit landlords by:

  • saving time and money for advertising costs and reduce invalid turnaround times
  • offering financial incentives paid within two weeks of a signed tenancy (you will need to speak to a member of the team for more details and terms and conditions)
  • ongoing tenancy support including visits to properties to help with any issues
  • access to mediation services with issues
  • direct support from a council officer if needed
  • help processing housing benefit applications
  • encouraging tenants to join the Tenant Accreditation Scheme to help them understand tenancy related matters.

Landlords that want to join the scheme will need to provide a gas safety certificate and an energy performance certificate rated E or above.
