The Private Sector Leasing scheme is a scheme run by Nottinghill/Genesis to assist home owners to maximize the use of their property without the need to deal with tenants or any of the legal issues.

About the scheme

Under this scheme whilst Hertsmere Borough Council provide the tenants, Nottinghill/Genesis Housing Association deal with the day to day management of property whilst providing a guaranteed monthly rent (please be advised this will be lower than the current LHA rate).  

During the tenancy, Nottinghill/Genesis complete regular inspections to make sure the property is being looked after and the tenants are adhering to the terms of their tenancy.

Tenancy period

The usual time period is between three and five years, and at the end of the three/five years, Nottinghill/Genesis will either negotiate another lease agreement or hand your property back in a similar condition to when it was originally taken on.
