Stevenage Borough Council`s housing specialists must inspect the selected private home and find that it is affordable and fits the size of the household. If the property complies with the safety and health standards of the Council officer, a lease signing meeting is agreed in the dwelling. Only when this has been done will the terms of the loan be agreed by the Council and these funds can be used in advance for the deferral of security or rent due. If you do not comply with these rental conditions or the lease, we may have to take you to court. If the court gives us a property order, you and your family must leave your home.
