Next Step Lets - Private sector renting

The Next Step Lets scheme is operated alongside Stevenage Borough Council’s Housing Advice and Homeless department assisting people the council owes a housing duty, access the private rented sector to whom otherwise would be denied.

The primary objective of the scheme is to prevent homelessness throughout the borough. With Social housing in short supply, the council believe that social housing is only one of a range of options to resolve the current housing crisis. Other options such as private sector letting are becoming an increasingly popular solution to homelessness.

We also offer rent and deposit loans to those who have been able to secure a private sector home on their own. This is a discretionary service offered by the Homeless and Housing advice Team. Please email them for details of eligibility
