Private Sector Leasing scheme

Are you a landlord looking for the security of a long-term let and someone to take the stress out of managing the tenants?

The Council is developing a new private sector leasing scheme and would like to hear from local landlords with properties in our area.

Our new Private Sector Leasing Scheme offers landlords:

  • Security of a long term let
  • Guaranteed rental income irrespective of void periods
  • No management or administration fees
  • Free annual gas checks and electrical safety checks
  • Regular tenancy management service

How it works

We will sign a lease with you for a fixed term, usually 12 months.  We will then sublet the property to eligible families, with regular management visits to ensure that it is kept in a good condition.  

We will pay your rent in advance, irrespective of whether our tenant pays late or the property is void. We will also pay the Council Tax bill for the year.


If you wish to be considered for the scheme, please complete our Landlord Registration Formand email it to or send it to us at the following address:
