How it works

Under our Private Sector Letting Service, we're responsible for using your property to house local families and manage their tenancy for you.

We'll deal with any issues during their tenancy at no cost to you, and you'll receive a steady income from their rent.

The rent you receive will be:

  • paid by us monthly, directly into your bank account
  • guaranteed for the duration of the lease
  • paid even if no one is living in your property

At the end of the tenancy, we'll return your property to you with no damage beyond fair wear and tear.
