We are looking to secure 12 month tenancies for residents who need accommodation now and who want to access the private rental market.

Incentives include:

  • A 12-month rent guarantee or Help2Rent insurance to cover unpaid rent
  • Funding rent shortfalls between the rent and the LHA rent
  • One month’s rent in advance and cash deposits to Landlords to cover first month’s rent in advance and the deposit on a property
  • £250 sign in grant
  • £150 pet payment to accept a tenant with well behaved pets

To be eligible for the scheme Landlords would need to enter into the Newcastle Accreditation Scheme to ensure the accommodation is safe and a decent standard.

What are we asking of you:

  • Provide a well-managed property at an affordable rent
  • Consider applications on a low income or welfare benefits
  • Report any problems in the tenancy and work with us to resolve issues
