One of the housing priorities of Portsmouth City Council is to ensure the affordability and supply of good quality privately rented housing.

To help tenants into rented accommodation they can afford, we manage various schemes with landlords who have signed up.

The private rented sector access team maintains a list of potential tenants who have been assessed and registered to be matched with suitable properties.

They are provided with support such as financing a deposit, assurance visits from council staff during their tenancy and ensuring rent is paid on time.

The council will arrange viewings for suitable tenants and ensure that properties meet our required standards.
