Incentives and support for landlords

Landlords who sign up to our Private Sector Lettings Scheme have access to a pool of potential tenants and can receive grants and support from us.

Our Private Sector Lettings Scheme is free to join and we offer:

  • A one-off cash incentive at the start of a tenancy
  • A cash deposit or deposit bond worth up to six weeks’ rent
  • Up to six weeks rent in advance
  • Periodic inspections of your property
  • A free inventory service
  • Ongoing support and advice throughout the tenancy
  • Regular events covering changes in the law and other issues affecting landlords
  • Funding for an end of tenancy clean and non-repayable grants for minor works.

As with any private rented tenancy, you will need to provide a valid Gas Safety Certificate and an Energy Performance Certificate. We will also ask for a valid electrical safety report.

Your property must also be in good condition and conform to the current standards.

For more information, please contact us.
