Expressions of interest are sought from owners of vacant houses for the Repair and Leasing Scheme.
What is the Repair and Leasing Scheme?
A key component of the Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness is a new initiative, the Repair and Leasing Scheme, which targets the delivery of social housing and also ensures that existing housing stock is used to the maximum degree possible.
The Repair and Leasing Scheme (RLS) is intended to target these properties as a potential source of social housing and also provides the property owner with an income stream that may be otherwise unavailable.
The basis of the scheme is that repair and improvement works to suitable vacant properties are funded to bring them up to the standard for rented accommodation and the cost of the works is then deducted from lease payments over an agreed lease term.
