The Private Rented Sector Team has been established to improve property and living conditions within the private rented sector for landlords and tenants throughout the borough of Gateshead. We are based at the Council's Civic Centre, not far from the heart of the private rented sector in Gateshead.

A range of services are offered to help tenants, these include:
  • Providing general advice, guidance and support to tenants.
  • Advice and support to help landlords improve their management and property standards.
  • The Private Rented Accreditation Scheme - designed to promote and recognise good management practices, improve physical property standards and ensure that every property has the relevant safety certificates in place.
  • Helping tenants access decent accommodation.
  • Improving standards for tenants
  • Advice, support, and investigation into cases of anti-social behaviour associated with the private rented sector.
  • Liaison between landlords and tenants to resolve disputes.
