Rent Deposit Loan Scheme
We operate a rent deposit loan scheme to help people who are homeless, or threatened with homelessness, access homes in the private rented sector.
To qualify for the scheme you must:
- have lived in the South Kesteven area for the past six months
- be homeless or in danger of becoming homeless
- be in 'priority need'
- be over 18
- pass an affordability check.
How it works
When moving into a new home in the private rented sector it is likely that the landlord will ask you for a deposit and the first months rent in advance. If you are homeless, or threatened with homelessness, then we may be able to help in a number of ways.
All applications for the scheme are subject to affordability checks to make sure that we help people into homes that they can afford on an ongoing basis.
