About ABC Lettings
For many years, the Council ran a successful bond scheme helping families secure accommodation in the private rented sector. However, the demand for housing outstripped supply and landlords wanted more security.
ABC Lettings was launched in 2012, with the scheme offering landlords a traditional management service with rent guaranteed. Since then we have housed hundreds of families, many of whom still remain in their original tenancies.
Due to our careful and considered approach, the scheme grew from strength to strength.
In 2015 Ashford Borough Council joined up with Shepway (now Folkestone and Hythe District Council) to offer the fully managed service to their landlords.
ABC Lettings now manage over 200 properties and still retain their original values, offering landlords a hands off management package with no hidden fees and rent guaranteed as standard.
With homelessness on the increase, ABC Lettings had to consider other ways of reducing the pressure on the Council.
Earlier this year two other packages were introduced, tenant find (for experienced landlords) and dispute resolution (for those problem tenants). We have also set up a landlord register for landlords looking to increase their portfolio.
The team at ABC Lettings have a wealth of experience and are able to find a solution to every problem, always putting you, the landlord first.
