Lettings Plus scheme

We are looking for new properties to help stop homelessness.

Lettings Plus is a free scheme for landlords and letting agencies with properties and rooms to rent.


We offer a range of incentives to landlords so that residents can privately rent homes, including:

  • Rent and deposit - First month’s rent and deposit in advance
  • Property Improvement grant - We inspect all properties to make sure the property is safe and hazard-free before anyone moves in. A grant (usually up to £500 per tenant) can be provided if a property needs minor work to remove hazards or improve safety
  • One-off incentives - Additional funding that can be used for things like a skip hire or minor repairs. This can include funding to fix specific issues that could put a tenancy at risk (maximum of £500 per tenancy)
  • Landlord liaison officer - Your single point of contact
  • Tenancy support - On a case-by-case basis to help maintain sustainable tenancy
  • Inspections - Quarterly inspections
  • Inventory checks - A written inventory free-of-charge, including descriptions and photographs of the property before the tenancy starts
  • Landlord mailing list - Email bulletins with useful updates, key legislative changes, events and training opportunities
Legal agreements

We do not become involved in the legal landlord and tenant relationship, which would remain an agreement between both parties under an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.
