Who can use this service

Landlords and letting agents operating in Lambeth and across south London.

What we're looking for

We're interested in decent properties in south London.

Currently we have a high demand for two bed properties but have tenants waiting for properties of all sizes.

All we ask of you is that you supply the normal safety certificates, are an accredited landlord, and agree to our terms and conditions.

As standard we agree fixed term tenancies of 12 months, but are happy to negotiate longer agreements if this would benefit your business.

What you need to know...

Rent and incentive

All of the rents that we agree are set at the local housing allowance. This is to ensure that they are affordable for your new tenant, who is likely to be on housing benefit.

By agreeing a rent at the local housing allowance level, you are able to budget for the long term knowing that you have a sustainable and secure source of income. Find the local housing allowance in your area.

We'll pay you a generous non-refundable incentive. Unlike a conventional deposit, this does not need to be placed in a deposit protection scheme.

You can decide how you use the money. The incentive you will be entitled to depends on the size and location of your property as well as our demand at the time of letting.

Tenants

All of the tenants we will introduce to you are thoroughly assessed by our expert team.

You can be confident that they have gone through a robust tenant vetting process. They also attend a training course to ensure that they have a clear understanding of their responsibilities, and they sign our tenant's code of conduct.

You will meet your tenant before they sign up and we are happy to arrange block viewings so as to give you a choice of suitable tenants.

Ongoing support

Our landlord advice team will deal with your enquiries and support you to manage your property free of charge. We can also provide your tenant with support through our floating support service. If you already have a tenant, please contact your landlord adviser.

To speak to the landlord advice team email landlordadvice@lambeth.gov.uk or call 020 7926 0200.
