Our Private Sector Housing Team deals with all housing which is not owned by the Council.  This includes privately rented accommodation, housing association properties and owner occupied properties (including those being bought through a mortgage).

Disabled Facilities Grant

We provide assistance to residents with a disability in the form of a Disabled Facilities Grant. Residents can obtain a grant provided that certain qualifying criteria are met and are available to all people with disabilities living in the District. These grants are funded by us, but are subject to assessment of need by an Occupational Therapist working for Social Services.

Bolsover  District Council tenants can apply for an adaptation through the Bolsover District Council Housing Department. Common adaptations include stairlifts, through floorlifts, alterations to bathrooms and the provision of downstairs facilities.

Applicants are presently subjected to a test of their financial resources, which is modelled on the housing benefit system, which determines his/her contribution which can range from nothing to the full cost of the work. In the latter scenario no grant is paid although the contribution is taken into account in a future application.

The grant may be reclaimed if the property changes hands but the amount to be repaid will be limited to amounts that exceed £5,000 and will not exceed a repayment of £10,000.

We work closely with Social Care and Health at Derbyshire County Council who has a duty to ensure that the disabled persons established needs are met.

To make an application for grant aid you should, in the first instance, telephone 0845 6058058 (Call Derbyshire) who will take your details and pass them on to the Occupational Therapy team.

Housing in Multiple Occupation

The Public Register of Licensed Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) shows if a landlord has been issued with a HMO Licence for his or her property and the expiry date of the HMO Licence.

New HMO Licence applications will not appear on the HMO Public Register until they have been processed and issued. Landlords of properties issued with HMO Licences must display a copy of their HMO Licence in a prominent position within the licensed premises.

Contact us - If you have any queries in relation to an HMO property which has been licensed, or which you feel should be licensed, please contact the Housing and Pollution Team on 01246 217873 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Landlord Accreditation Scheme (DASH)

Membership of the scheme is £99 for owners of under 20 properties,  however, Bolsover District residents are able to join FREE of charge and membership will last 3 years. The Scheme is voluntary and open to any residential landlord in the East Midlands region.

Being a DASH accredited landlord will set you apart from the rest. The scheme will provide public recognition that you are a reputable landlord who not only maintains property standards, but who also treats tenants fairly and manages their properties well.

Once you are a member to the scheme you will be able to use the DASH logo in adverts and on letterheads to promote yourself giving you an edge above the rest. Also, as an accredited landlord you will have access to training and best practice guidance and be able to take full advantage of the the DASH guidance materials and events to enable them to understand fully property management and how to deal with tenancies in an ever changing environment.

Amongst the benefits  as a DASH accredited landlord, you will have access to a range of specially discounted services which have been negotiated for you by DASH. For more information on this check out the FAQ page on the DASH website.
