Welsh Government Private Rented Scheme


The Welsh Government is funding a scheme to improve access to longer-term, affordable, good quality housing for homeless households. 

Under the scheme, local authorities will lease properties from landlords for five years.

In Newport we are looking for self-contained, one-bedroom flats or studio apartments and landlords will be offered:

  • a five-year lease
  • monthly rental paid in advance, no void periods
  • full management by the local authority – no management fees
  • if essential works are needed, a grant of up to £2000
  • an interest-free top-up loan of up to £8000 for further works if required

If you are interested please email us as soon as possible at housing.strategy@newport.gov.uk
