Private Sector Letting Scheme- Landlords' Guide

We operate a Private Sector Lettings Scheme (PSLS) working with landlords and agents to help people seeking accommodation find suitable homes in our city.

The Housing Options Team, based at Great George Street, experience daily high demand from people seeking accommodation. Many of those looking for homes are in receipt of benefits and often need to be housed quickly.

Benefits of the scheme:

  • There are no fees
  • We find tenants for you
  • Tenancy checks are carried out and you decide whether to offer a tenancy
  • Damage Liability cover of up to 1 month’s rent for the fixed period. (No bonds are paid)
  • Qualified Housing Inspectors who are able to provide maintenance advice as well as ensuring your property meets legal requirements
  • Tenants set up on direct payment via Housing Benefit or a ring-fenced payment through Leeds Credit Union
  • Single point of contact

Before we can accept your property on the scheme we undertake a free inspection to ensure it meets minimum housing standards.

If your property fails the inspection you will be given guidance on how to make it suitable.

If you are interested in finding out more about the scheme please download the Information Pack from the Documents section.
