JMHA's Private Sector Leasing model benefits local authorities by supplying self-contained properties procured from the private rented sector to meet the authority's statutory duty by providing suitable temporary accommodation to homeless households. Properties are leased by JMHA from private landlords and other property owners for periods of between 1, 3, 5 or even 7 years. These homes are then sublet by JMHA to people who are homeless.
For local landlords and local authorities, the many benefits of JMHA PSL model include:
Leased properties can now be used for homelessness prevention accommodation. This allows for the provision of quality private sector homes to this client group before a homelessness duty exists. We can design a service that is virtually cost neutral to local authorities by taking on the majority of the void, arrears and damage risks.
