Falkirk Council asking home owners to rent out their property to council tenants
In a bid to find additional temporary accommodation for local families Falkirk Council is asking people who own empty homes to consider renting them out.
The local authority is looking for landlords in the area to enter into Private Sector Leasing.
A Falkirk Council spokesman said: “We are looking for additional temporary accommodation to help local people and families and are keen to find one and two-bedroom properties, preferably flats, in various locations however, we would consider any property type.
“Private Sector Leasing, or PSL for short, is a scheme that allows the council to enter into an agreement with landlords to lease their property for a minimum of three years.
“Benefits of the scheme include guaranteed rental income, even if the property is empty, no direct involvement in letting or tenancy management, and assurance that all legislation relating to letting is being met.”
