What does it do?

If you own your property ...

Home repair assistance: If your property requires updating or repairing you may be eligible for home repair assistance of up to £5,000. This is to eliminate danger including electrical, gas and structural safety, replacement or repair of windows and doors where their condition is allowing water to penetrate into the property.

To quality you must: 

  • Be an owner occupier aged 60 or over; and
  • Have lived in the property for 3 years or more; and
  • Be receiving means-tested benefits.

Please note we can't deal with all the demands of poor housing conditions and individual needs. We have to carefully target resources to ensure we meet the most pressing needs and priorities.

Who it is for?

To quality you must: 

  • Be an owner occupier aged 60 or over; and
  • Have lived in the property for 3 years or more; and

What it costs:

If you're successful in receiving assistance we'll place a charge on the property and when it's sold the whole amount will be paid back to the Council.
