Borough Council of Wellingborough

Private Sector Housing

Home condition, Improvement and Grants

Private Sector Housing provides advice and assistance to private sector residents and private landlords.

We provide financial assistance in the form of grants for owners to carry out repairs, improve energy efficiency or to carry out disabled adaptations.

We enforce standards in privately rented properties including Houses in Multiple Occupation and also conduct housing fitness reports for immigration purposes.

The Private Sector Housing Policy sets out the council's position regarding provision of information, advice and support to homeowners, tenants of private rented properties and private landlords regarding the repair, improvement and adaptation of their property.
