What is mid-market rent?

Mid-market rent is a scheme to help working households on low and modest income access high quality affordable rented accommodation.  These homes offer high quality, secure and accessible living that is sustainable, energy efficient and easily maintained.

Do I qualify?

Mid-market rent, provided by Novantie Ltd, mainly aims to help people who may have difficulty accessing social rented housing, buying their own home, or affording private sector rents.  To qualify you must be employed or have an offer of employment and meet all of the qualifying criteria:

  •  The applicant(s) gross annual household income should be between £17,000 and £27,000, unless stated otherwise in a property advert because:
    • different income criteria are specified by the local authority, or
    • due to the property type, a lower rent is charged and therefore a lower income threshold would be appropriate.
  • The property must be occupied as the household’s principle home.
  • The applicant(s) should be able to afford to take up and sustain the tenancy.

I meet the criteria, what do I do now?

Any vacancies are advertised on our website and are dealt with on a first come first served basis.  If you see a property which you think you might be eligible for, you should complete and submit an application form.

Please note we do not hold a waiting list for mid-market rent properties.
