Tenant in Situ Scheme

The Tenant in Situ Scheme allows Local Authorities to buy properties where tenants are facing eviction when the landlord is selling the property. The Scheme applies to tenants with a valid Notice of Termination, deemed at risk of experiencing homelessness and who qualify for social housing support, including those in receipt of Rent Supplement, Housing Assistance Payment (HAP), or in a RAS or long-term leased property.

The DRHE advises anyone with a Notice of Termination to contact their Local Authority for advice as soon as the Notice is received from their Landlord.
