Tenant Finder Service

If you're a private landlord or letting agent in the borough, you can apply to rent your properties through the council. We are an established and successful letting service working with over 100 local landlords, currently letting around 350 properties. 

We need properties that:

  • are in a good state of repair 
  • are within the borough or nearby

Renting your property through us is quicker, easier and cheaper than doing it independently. We offer:

  • no fees or commission
  • cash incentive payments
  • choice of tenants
  • low void periods
  • a comprehensive property inspection
  • a  dedicated and experienced officer to take control of the letting process and provide support to you and your tenant throughout the tenancy

How it works:

  • we visit your property and assess it for repairs
  • we assess potential tenants 
  • you choose your own tenants from households referred by us
  • we arrange a number of viewings so you have a choice of potential tenants
  • once you're happy, we'll take care of the sign up process for you and your tenant
  • where applicable, we'll help your tenant to submit an application for housing support 
  • we'll ask that benefits are paid directly into your bank account

We help with the tenants' deposit and pay a non-returnable cash incentive.  The incentive varies, depending on the size and location of your property and our current needs.

We can let your property quickly and would love to hear from you, so we can provide a free inspection and a no obligation quote on rental value.
