Yes We Rent! will generate an accessible housing stock targeting medium income households using properties that have been left empty and off the market. By offering a guaranteed rent, and financial and organisational support to renovate properties, the project will incentivise risk averse owners to rent to the affordable housing scheme at below market prices. It will also keep part of the benefits in order to consolidate and grow its offering. 
Additionally, Yes We Rent! tests an organisational model of a multi-stakeholder coop, which can be publicly funded and controlled, while drawing on the empowerment and self-management potential of cooperatives. Tenants will be trained and incentivised to engage in self-help, empowerment, joint development of housing related services, and recruitment of new flats.
