LANDLORDS are being asked by the council if they are interested in leasing properties to use as temporary accommodation for the homeless.
Erewash Borough Council is seeking one- and two-bedroom properties in the Erewash area as it says it has a statutory duty to provide temporary accommodation for people who find themselves in difficulties.
It has to find homes for people who have a priority need, for example if they have children or are vulnerable.
Cllr Carol Hart, the authority’s lead member for community engagement, said: “Temporary accommodation is so valuable to these people and helps them through upsetting times until they find a permanent home.”
Anyone interested in leasing to the council should call senior housing options officer Leah Clarke on 0845 907 2244 ext 3592.
