Councillor Charmaine Morgan

Recognising there is a shortage of affordable social housing and need to support all, including our most vulnerable residents, South Kesteven District Council members support the provision of an SKDC funded Rent Guarantor Scheme or Guaranteed Rent Scheme to enable residents in receipt of benefit income or a pension to gain access to housing in the private rented sector. 

a)         It provides an assurance to private landlords and housing associations that their rental costs and potential repair costs will be met for the duration of the Term of the Contract. 

b)         It offers councils the ability to re-house people, notably in receipt of benefits, or, low income, otherwise unable to access private rented housing left in inappropriate accommodation and/or for prolonged periods on the council waiting list. 

c)          The scheme also enables the council to agree predefined standards with both tenant and landlord.
