If you are a private landlord, tenant or homeowner our Private Sector Housing Unit (PSHU) can provide you with a range of services including:
Information for private landlords including standards for privately rented housing.
We provide advice and information for tenants renting private accommodation. This includes advising on the minimum standards of accommodation they should expect from their landlord and how we can support both them and the landlord in achieving them.
Empty properties are more than a potential home for a household to live in. They are a blight on a neighbourhood and may be associated with criminal activity.
We are committed to help improve living conditions for those in private housing, ensuring that properties are safe and secure. In some instances, this may mean providing incentives for landlords.
Local Housing Allowance (LHA) is a new way of working out new claims for Housing Benefit for tenants renting accommodation from a private landlord.
