Private sector housing renewal: Financial assistance

You can find our policy on private sector housing renewal below. The policy is currently under review and at present other than the provision of disabled facilities grants, home improvement loans or grants are not currently being funded. However proposals for a new scheme are being developed.

Any enquiries with regard to financial assistance to bring homes to a decent homes standard, to carry out repairs or improvements will be held on file. Information will be provided when funding becomes available.

Financial assistance for disabled facility adaptations or, for owners to relocate from homes that are no longer suitable are available subject to eligibility.

Other eligible works could include:

- conversion of shops or flats into single family homes
- bringing homes that have stood empty for over six months back into use
- energy efficiency improvements

Eligibility for all financial assistance is means tested.
