Following Government advice that is designed to help reduce the spread of Covid 19, the council has taken a number of steps to help ensure the wellbeing of customers, staff and the wider community, while also keeping essential services running.

Due to the above, the Rent it Right schemes will be closed for any new enquiries until further notice. Existing landlords will still be able to access the website but we will not be able to offer any technical support at this time.

'Striving to improve the standard of living throughout the city'

Portsmouth is a greatly diverse city with an estimated 207,000 people living within the city, which makes it one of the most densely populated cities outside of London. The private rental market is a fundamental part of the demographic of the city as 81% of the residents live in the private sector either as owner occupiers or private tenants.

Rent it Right is a voluntary landlord accreditation scheme run by Portsmouth City Council which gives you recognition for being a good landlord.

Our Leasing scheme enables local landlords and Portsmouth City Council to work together to provide affordable homes in Portsmouth for local people in housing need. Watch our promotion video and get an overview of our services.
