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.

  • 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.
  • Provision of tenancy agreements
  • Information and advertising of property to rent in the private sector.
  • Liaison between landlords and tenants to resolve disputes.
