Tipperary County Council - Repair and lease Scheme

A key action of the Government’s Rebuilding Ireland: An Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness is the Repair and Leasing Scheme. The scheme targets the delivery of social housing units and also ensures that existing housing stock is used to the maximum degree possible. The scheme provides for funding for repair and improvement works to suitable privately owned vacant properties to bring them up to the standard for rented accommodation. The properties are then leased to Tipperary County Council or an Approved Housing Body for a minimum of ten years and the cost of the works is deducted from lease payments over the agreed lease term.
