Frequently Asked Questions

+ Do you charge for this service?

No, there is no charge for the tenant find service.

+ How is your tenant find only service different to a high street agent?

The Council have a number of tenants who are suitable for the private sector, they can afford the rent but not the upfront costs for a deposit and rent in advance. We can assist with these payments. They may also struggle to pass the rigorous credit checks or not be able to put forward a guarantor.

As soon as we have received all the legal documentation, have inspected the property and agreed the rental we would shortlist the most suitable tenants. They go through a comprehensive affordability check. Plus, where possible we would contact their previous landlord for a reference. We aim to tenant the property within two weeks.
