Housing Repair and Leasing Initiative

rebuildingirelandDo you have a vacant house or apartment that’s in need of repair, but lack of funding is a problem?  If so, the above scheme may be of interest to you.

The scheme allows for suitable vacant properties to be refurbished and, in return, the property is made available to the Council for social housing through a lease arrangement.

There are many benefits for the property owner, such as:

  • Guaranteed rent
  • No dealing with tenants
  • No day to day maintenance
  • No need to collect rent or find  new tenants
  • No loss of rent during vacant periods

More information, including application forms and full particulars may be found on our website at :

If you think this scheme may be of interest to you, please contact
Margaret Phelan, Housing Department, Waterford City and County Council.
