Private Rented Leasing Scheme

The Private Rented Leasing Scheme is a pilot scheme which aims to improve access to long-term affordable and good quality housing, with tenancy support in the private rented sector.

The scheme will offer a range of support services and benefits to the applicant and to the private landlord. The aim is to make the tenancy successful for both parties.

The scheme offers landlords a full property management package including repairs and maintenance with a guaranteed rental income even when the property is not occupied by a tenant.​

We will provide ongoing housing support to the tenant, helping them gain greater independence and sustain a successful tenancy.

Renting your property to us

We are looking to lease unfurnished properties for three years or more to provide homes for the residents of Cardiff​.

We need a range of different property types and sizes across the main areas of population in Cardiff.

If you lease your property to us you will need to:
  • Provide Gas, Electrical and Energy Performance or Safety certificates
  • Provide Buildings Insurance (including Public Liability)
  • Provide Confirmation that you have insurance and mortgage consent arrangements in place that allow participation in the scheme
  • Meet mandatory property standard requirements set by Welsh Government 
  • Provide Copy of Land Registry to confirm ownership of property
  • Be responsible for paying any service charges related to the property and any external works to the property

We will undertake the day-to day management of the properties within the scheme.

Our Housing Support Workers will regularly inspect properties, monitor tenant activity and promptly deal with any issues, should they arise.

We will meet rent payments even if the property remains unoccupied.
