The YMCA lease and repair scheme
We are working with the YMCA to bring long-term empty properties back into use.
The YMCA will pay for any works needed to make the property habitable.
In return they will:
- Lease the property for 5-10 years
- Rent it out to a household in housing need
- Manage the tenancy for you
- Guarantee you a rental income
If you are interested in this option and would like to find out more, please contact:

Renovate your property
Trading standards in West Sussex provide useful advice for those undertaking building works.
Their ‘Buy with Confidence’ scheme has a regularly updated list of approved traders.
To request a Buy with confidence directory - Tel: 01243-642124
Properties that have been empty for a certain amount of time can benefit from a VAT discount on any works bringing the home back into use.
We can confirm how long a property has been empty to help the owner get this reduction. For more information - see the HM Revenue website.
