Leasing or selling residential property to Clare County Council

Have you a residential property you wish to sell or lease?

Clare County Council hereby invites residential property owners to sell or lease their properties to Clare County Council. The council is looking to buy or lease houses and apartments in areas of housing need. Any property will be considered provided it meets or can meet the minimum standards for rental properties and where there is a housing need. A new Buy and Renew Scheme has been introduced and the focus under the scheme is on older stock in urban areas with a view to tackling dereliction and improving streetscapes. 

There are two options for property owners interested in leasing:

  1. Long term lease arrangements (10-20 years)
  2. Availability arrangements (1-10 years)

Why let your property to Clare County Council?

  • A guaranteed rent even when the property is vacant
  • Escape the hassle of collecting rent and finding a new tenant
  • No day-to-day maintenance responsibilities under long term lease arrangements
  • Avoid advertising costs
