Do you have an empty property? Are you unsure what to do with it?
Owning an empty property can have huge financial implications. You may have a mortgage to pay, insurance billsand even a council tax penalty for having an unoccupied property.
It can be very confusing to know what to do – and the decision to become a landlord can be a daunting one – especially if you have never managed tenants before or don’t have the time to commit to this.
NPRAS can help!
There is a huge demand for affordable and decent homes in Nottingham. There are also many letting agents who will offer to find you a tenant and manage your property. However, these services may come at a hefty cost.
The Nottingham Private Rented Assistance Scheme (NPRAS) is different.
Unlike letting agencies, NPRAS is not a private agencyfocused on creating profits – we’re focused on creating homes for families at risk of homelessness.
At NPRAS we work to secure private rented properties for homeless families. To do this, we offer a FREE Letting Service to landlords as well as a low-cost Management Service.
