Housing

Financial assistance for property repairs


Newcastle under Lyme Borough Council aims to improve housing conditions in the area by reducing the number of homes which do not meet the Decent Homes Standard and and also making sure that the housing needs of vulnerable people are being met.  In some cases the council may be able to offer financial assistance for property repairs.

To be eligible it will depend on;

  • your household income
  • what type of works are required
  • If you own or rent the property

So that we can work out if you would be eligible, you will need to complete an 'Enquiry Form' which is available from the Housing Services team or by downloading.  You can also complete the form over the phone by phoning 01782 742543 or complete the form on line

When we have received your enquiry, an officer will contact you and may need to carry out an inspection of your home. The officer will then write to you and let you know what assistance may be available.

Grants for Energy Efficiency measures are also available (see related section)

The council has also contracted the services of the Revival Home Improvement Agency who can offer help with completing forms, obtaining quotes and dealing with contractors etc.  They can be contacted by telephoning 01782 749202 or by following the web link below

If you are not eligible for financial assistance from the council, this agency may be able to help you with alternative sources of funding or Loan type schemes - see leaflet below

If you need any further information or advice, please contact the  Housing Services team by phoning 01782 742543
