Landlords – would you like the security of a long term let with guaranteed rent?


Secure Lets - Taking the stress out of renting your property


Thank you for your interest in Secure Lets - previously known as the Enhanced Private Sector Leasing Scheme (EPSL) from Milton Keynes Council.  

House secured with chains

Under the scheme, Milton Keynes Council becomes your tenant and signs a lease for a fixed term.  Throughout the period, the agreed rent is paid directly into your bank account.  Once the lease is signed the Council sub-lets the property to a suitable family using a licence.  Council officers visit the family at regular intervals to ensure that their tenancy is sustainable.
