Standard Long Term Leasing

Do you have a property you would like to lease to us for a period of 10- 25 years and be guaranteed rental income?

If your answer is yes, we want to hear from you! We lease homes from home owners in our administrative area to house applicants on our social housing waiting list.  The home owner receives a guaranteed rent set at 80 to 85% market rents. For the duration of the lease we will act as the landlord for our tenant and will carry out the day-to-day maintenance on the home.

All proposals are evaluated for: 

• the demand for Social Housing in the area,
• the objective of sustainable communities by having a good balance of mixed income and mixed tenure households in an area.

If you have a one, two, three or four bed home available for letting that is in good condition and complies with private rented home standards you can get the following benefits:

• guaranteed rental income,
• no rent collection/arrears or vacancy periods,
• no day-to-day maintenance costs,
• no advertising costs or tenancy fees,
• leasing arrangements of 10-25 years available.

If you would like to submit a proposal to be considered under this scheme, please complete the attached Expression of Interest form and submit to
