Private Sector Leasing (PSL) is a scheme where the council leases a privately-owned home, then uses the property for local families in need of accommodation. Typically the lease will be for a period of three years. Currently this scheme is only available within the Lewes District, and the same scheme is not available in Eastbourne.
We are responsible for managing the property during the life of the lease, including all contact with the tenant. At the end of the lease, the property will be returned to you with vacant possession.
The idea of the scheme is to help owners gain a steady income from their property while helping the community by providing accommodation for families in need. You also have the added satisfaction of knowing that your property is in safe hands.
