Rent Deposit Scheme

The Housing Advice and Homelessness Service operates a private sector rent deposit scheme to house people into the private rented sector who have no deposit and are on a low income or on benefits. The purpose of the scheme is to help Stevenage Borough Council to prevent homelessness throughout our Borough.
 
The Rent Deposit Scheme offers advantages to tenants and to landlords.  For more information, please see the links below.

For further information on the Rent Deposit Scheme please contact the housing and homelessness team.

There is an annual forum for private landlords, please contact the Environmental Health and Licensing section for further information.
