Rent your property through the Council
If you're a private landlord, we can let your property through one of three schemes. These schemes have the joint benefits of a free supported letting for your property, and helping to alleviate the deep housing need in the borough.
For all three of these schemes, we need self-contained properties to support households in Kingston.
You can rent your property through one of these schemes:
- Tenant Finder, a free service that matches landlords with households threatened with homelessness. The Council pays rent in advance and an incentive, and the following agreement is between the landlord and tenant, but with council support. Register your interest in this scheme by emailing email@example.com
- Private Sector Leasing Scheme: a free service providing long-term homes for those assessed as homeless. In this scheme, we will pay an incentive and you would sign a leasing agreement with the council guaranteeing your rent. Register your interest in this scheme by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
- Refugee Resettlement Schemes, which provide homes to refugees resettled in Kingston. The Council pays an incentive, and the following agreement is between tenant and landlord. Register your interest by emailing email@example.com.
