Improvement and Repair of Private Sector Properties

The Private Sector Services Unit can provide advice, information and limited financial assistance to owners, landlords and private tenants to enable them to deal with a range of housing related matters. In addition to general information and advice, practical help will be provided in certain circumstances.  This service includes:

  • Property inspection reports and maintenance plans to owner occupiers for properties more than 10 years old
  • In conjunction with the Occupational Therapy Service, practical help in arranging adaptations to meet the need of a disabled person
  • Support to owners trying to arrange common repairs including coordinating & chairing meetings in neutral venues

With limited Private Sector Housing Grant (PSHG) funding available to assist home owners to repair and improve their homes, the Council have had to prioritise the categories of work which will receive grant assistance.  These are summarised below:
