Deadline 1st February
In 2019 the Foundation is looking to support projects which focus on one of the following themes:
Promoting knowledge of landlords’ obligations
Promoting knowledge of tenants’ rights & responsibilities
1. Promoting knowledge of landlords’ obligations
It is clear that the growth of the private rented sector has been fuelled in recent years in part by the rise of the ‘accidental landlord’. This is often a person who owns property but who is required by circumstances to let the property. These landlords tend to be inexperienced and not fully understand the obligations that they have to meet as a landlord.
The Foundation invites proposals that will help to educate such landlords about the obligations of being a private landlord.
Please note: They will not fund general workshop sessions for the time being, except where applications are particularly innovative.
2. Promoting knowledge of tenants’ rights & responsibilities
The Foundation is aware that many tenants are not fully aware of their rights and responsibilities and the Foundation will invite proposals which will help educate tenants about their rights and responsibilities.
The Foundation invites proposals that will help to educate tenants.
The maximum amount available for each individual project is £5,000.
