Leicester City Council: Further reading

Private sector landlords are being offered a package of support and help - including financial incentives, secure rental income and hassle-free letting - thanks to a new scheme being launched by Leicester City Council.

It has drawn up a programme to work with private sector landlords in providing much-needed housing. By working with the city council to rent out their houses, landlords will be able to benefit from secure income, guaranteed regular rent and no estate agents fees.

Help on offer ranges from fully managing the property long-term on behalf of the landlord, to simply helping would-be tenants secure deposits or up-front rental payments.

At all stages throughout the process, comprehensive and practical help will be on offer, covering a range of housing and tenancy issues - for example, getting involved on the landlord's behalf if there are issues with rent payments.

The new programme has been drawn up to attract landlords whose properties could be put to use to provide much-needed accommodation for some of the thousands of families currently needing somewhere to live.
