rent deposit guarantee scheme and private sector tenancy information service

For those who are eligible, the rent deposit guarantee scheme provides people on low incomes and in housing need, access to private sector rented accommodation in Dumfries and Galloway.

Referrals to the scheme can be made by Dumfries and Galloway Housing Services or the Enhanced Advice and Information Service at Dumfries and Galloway Citizens Advice Bureau. Alternatively we can also accept self-referrals direct.

The rent deposit guarantee scheme provides private landlords a written guarantee bond in place of a cash deposit for the duration of the tenancy.
