Existing Council Tenants
Information for existing council tenants:
How is my rent calculated? What happens if I miss a payment? How can I pay my rent? How often must I pay my rent?
If you are a tenant in a Westmeath County Council home on which you pay rent, certain repairs will be carried out by us.
If you have been a tenant of Westmeath County Council for at least one year, then you may apply to the Council to buy your house.
If you have been a tenant for at least one year, then you may apply to buy your house, either outright or through shared ownership.
Where the housing needs of an existing tenant has changed due to overcrowding or disability an extension to existing accommodation may be provided as an alternative to re-housing.
