Tackling Private Sector Housing Issues

Home owners, private sector landlords and tenants across west Cheshire are invited to attend a series of travelling roadshows this June – designed to tackle a range of housing issues.

Advice and support on an array of topics from bringing empty houses back into use and energy efficiency to disabled facilities grants and home improvement loans will be on offer.

Legal housing standards for rented properties, grants for emergency works and the Cheshire Landlord Accreditation Scheme will also be highlighted by the authority’s Private Sector Housing Team.

The aim of the scheme is to emphasise to local residents the range of financial support that is available to help improve housing in their area.

Councillor Herbert Manley, Executive Member for Prosperity, said: “Cheshire West and Chester is dedicated to ensuring that rented properties throughout the area are maintained to the desired standards and that tenants know their rights.

“Homeowners too may not be fully aware of options available to them when it comes to home improvements and energy efficiency and these road shows will offer advice and support from experienced staff.

“I would encourage all tenants, private landlords and indeed homeowners who would like advice on grants to help maintain their property, or legislation relating to rental standards or any other issue related to private housing to find their local venue and come along.”
