This scheme is for private tenants who have received a notice of termination and are at risk of homelessness because their landlord is selling. The Housing Agency can buy the rental property and rent it back to the tenant.
The Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) is a social housing support provided by local authorities. Under the scheme, rent is paid directly to private landlords and you pay a weekly contribution to your local authority.
If you are renting privately and having difficulty paying your rent, you may qualify for Rent Supplement. If you qualify for social housing support, you should apply for the Housing Assistance Payment instead.
