Private Rented Scheme

Our Private Rented Scheme (PRS) aims to provide households with a property in the private sector by offering landlords and letting agents an incentive package to offer up properties.

Benefits of the scheme

If you are a landlord or agent with a property in the borough (or as close as possible), the PRS provides a number of benefits:

  • A financial incentive package
  • No fees or commission for letting
  • We will pay for you to become an accredited landlord with the NRLA
  • Cover landlord insurance, to include arrears and damage up to the sum of £460
  • Tenants assessed by the Council
  • A dedicated and experienced officer to support and assist you through the letting process

Our requirements

You will need to be a good landlord and have:

  • A self-contained ready to let property which is in a good state of repair and meets statutory regulations
  • A valid gas safety certificate form a Gas Safe registered installer
  • A valid electrical safety certificate form (with no less than an E rating) from an electrician registered with a government approved body such as NICEIC
  • A tenancy agreement
