Lewisham Council - Grants and loans for private housing

Grants and loans for private housing

Home owners, private tenants and private sector landlords may be eligible for a grant or interest-free loan for home maintenance and other costs.

Many people struggle with the cost of home maintenance, especially older and disabled residents who may feel unable to carry out the work themselves.

Although maintaining the condition of private homes is the owner’s responsibility, we recognise that this is not always possible.

Your application will vary according to the type of assistance you require. In all cases residents interested in applying for a grant or interest free loan will need to complete a form.

If you require help completing the form in regards to disabled adaptations and home repair grants and loans our Staying Put service are available to assist.

Please note that no work can be started until you have received a formal grant or loan approval letter.
