Why work with Peter McVerry Trust?

There are three key reasons to partner with Peter McVerry Trust and provide rental accommodation to the individuals we work with and support:

Security of Rental Income for Landlord

Tenants Supported and Managed by Peter McVerry Trust

Help Provide a Home

 

Security of Rental Income

 

Working with Peter McVerry Trust and taking on a social tenant through the Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Scheme offers a number of benefits to landlords including;

 

Direct payment: You will be paid electronically on the last Wednesday of each month. This payment covers the occupation of the property by the HAP tenant for that calendar month.

Consistency of payment: The HAP payment to you will not change if your tenant’s income changes.

Low administration: You don’t need to collect rent or make requests for payment from your HAP tenant.

Easy banking: All payments are made electronically

Tax Relief: Landlords who rent to tenants in receipt of social housing supports such as HAP may avail of increased tax relief. This allows property owners to claim 100% on their mortgage interest, as an expense against rental income.

 

Tenants supported and managed by Peter McVerry Trust

Our goal is to provide stable accommodation to people exiting homelessness. Therefore, it is important for Peter McVerry Trust to make sure every move into private rental accommodation is successful.

 

Each person progressing to private rental accommodation via the HAP Scheme will receive a minimum of 6 months visiting support from Peter McVerry Trust’s specialist Housing with Supports Service. This service provides professional supports to the tenant in order to help them make the transition to their new home and integrate into their new community. Peter McVerry Trust staff members are on hand to support both tenant and landlord by providing professional supports and advice to make sure the tenancy is a success for all parties.

 

Help Provide a Home

Peter McVerry Trust works with an increasingly diverse range of people in homelessness, from single people, couples to families.  Many people are in employment, training, education or are full time parents. The private rental market is their best and quickest option to secure a home for them and their families. If you decide to partner with Peter McVerry Trust you can be assured that you will not just be offering accommodation, but a home to people who will value it.
