Information for Landlords

The private rented sector has grown considerably over recent years and there are now more private sector tenancies in England than there are social housing tenancies. Colchester Borough Homes recognises the increasingly important role that private sector landlords play in meeting society's housing needs. We are keen to work closely with private sector landlords and, by following the links on this page, you will find lots of useful information about the legal responsibilities placed on landlords, the schemes that we have available to help landlords let out their properties and the Colchester Landlord Forum (where landlords can keep up to date on changes to housing law as well as networking with officers from the Council and Colchester Borough Homes along with other housing professionals).

Colchester Borough Homes is keen to support landlords to ensure that they manage their tenancies within the law. If you cannot find the information you are looking for on these pages, or you would like to discuss any of the schemes that we offer to help you let out your properties then please do not hesitate to contact us on 01206 507861.
