Long-term Leasing

Local authorities may lease properties in good condition from property owners for long term social housing.

Long Term Leasing Scheme


Following on from the recently published "Housing for All - a New Housing Plan for Ireland" by The Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, the clear focus of the plan is firmly on new-build delivery.

Housing for All aims to phase out the current long term leasing models to new entrants over the period of the Plan. Local Authorities have been informed that the delegated authority under which they could enter into lease agreements will cease from the end of 2021.

This does not affect existing lease agreements already entered into.
