Repair & Leasing Scheme

Repair & Leasing Scheme

Repair and Leasing Scheme

The Repair and Leasing Scheme allows owners of houses or apartments which have been vacant for a minimum of one year and require necessary repairs to restore suitable properties to a required standard.

Cavan County Council is currently seeking applications or expressions of interest from owners of vacant houses who may be interested in participating in this scheme.

The Repair and Leasing Scheme is part of the Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan, and is one of a number of initiatives aimed at bringing vacant private housing stock back into productive use, in suitable locations where there is a demand for social housing.

The Local Authority or an Approved Housing Body will pay for the initial repair costs, subject to a limit of €80,000, in return for a 10 to 20-year lease. The lease payments will be adjusted over a period to recoup the initial repair costs.

If you wish to submit an Expression of Interest please complete the Application Form
