Property Pool Plus
Property Pool Plus is a scheme for letting the majority of social rented property in Merseyside and Halton. It is a partnership between 5 local authorities and 22 social housing providers.
Property Pool Plus operates an open register and will accept anyone aged 16 years or over.
They are a person from abroad and have been classed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local government as ineligible for housing.
They or a member of their household is guilty of unacceptable behaviour serious enough to make them an unsuitable tenant.
Note: Applicants aged 16 or 17 years may register on Property Pool Plus but will not normally be offered a tenancy before they reach 18 years of age. If a pressing need to house such individuals is established by either the Housing Options Service or Children and Young People’s Service, the Scheme Landlord may require a rent guarantor and a support plan.
