Landlords and private housing

As part of its strategy to reduce homelessness and minimise use of bed and breakfast accommodation, the Council is keen to work with private landlords.

The benefits of leasing your property to the Council through the Private Sector Leasing scheme can be found on these pages, along with information about the Private Rented Scheme, which will help you to find tenant(s) for your property.

The Council is also working to reduce the number of empty properties in the Borough and details of how this is being achieved can be found here.
