Eden landlords: we need your help

Are you a private landlord? Or, do you have a vacant property and not sure what to do with it? Eden District Council might be able to assist.

Eden District Council wants landlords in the area to help it find homes for vulnerable people - and it has a range of support options available.

Cllr Judith Derbyshire, Housing and Health Portfolio Holder at Eden District Council, said

“At Eden District Council, we believe that everyone should have a place to call home.

“No two properties or tenants are the same, so we tailor our support for each tenant, based upon their needs.”

The Property Links scheme matches up those that are facing homelessness with private landlords who are looking for long-term tenants.

The Council is looking for all types of properties in Eden which are available for private rent.  Benefits of the scheme include:

  • No management fees or commission – landlords retain 100% of the agreed rental income
  • A comprehensive property inventory at the start and end of the tenancy
  • A dedicated officer to provide support and signposting to both tenant and landlord
  • Landlords retain full control and decision making throughout the tenancy

Financial incentives may also be available to landlords, subject to criteria.
