Private Sector Leasing

Our Services



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:

  • Meeting statutory requirements to house homeless households.
  • Avoiding the overreliance on permanent stock for temporary accommodation.
  • Avoiding expensive alternatives, such as bed and breakfast.
  • Provide landlords with no voids and arrears on their properties.
  • Indemnifying landlords against property damage (subject to agreed-upon limits).
  • Client-led property procurement, with proven track record of procuring suitable properties ahead of target.
  • Full professional tenancy and property management service.
  • All landlord communications and liaison, from procurement stage through to hand-back.



    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.


    Benefits to councils:

  • Reduction in the use of temporary accommodation
  • Cost saving.
  • Risk transfer.
  • Access to increased range of properties.
  • Help meeting England 2010 homelessness targets.

    Benefits to tenants:

  • Choice of quality accommodation.
  • Build-up of PRS tenancy reference.
  • Professional housing management service
  • Full HB eligibility
  • Proactive assistance before housing crisis develops.
