    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a council guaranteed rent scheme?

    A council guaranteed rent scheme ensures landlords receive their monthly rental payments on time throughout the term of an agreement. Whether the property is tenanted or not, and even if the tenant has fallen behind with their payments, the rental payments will continue. A guaranteed rent scheme is ideal for London landlords looking for a hands-off, reduced-risk investment.

    How much does your guaranteed rent scheme cost?

    We will agree with you a fair market rent which will be the net amount you will receive by monthly standing order. We earn our fees by charging local authorities directly to source good homes for their families. Once we have taken all the necessary steps to ensure your property is compliant with all the relevant lettings industry legislation, there are no more fees to pay for the term of our agreement, and no commission deducted.

    Will my property be in safe hands with you?

    It certainly will. We make a promise that your property will be returned to you at the end of our agreement in the same condition it was at the start, with an allowance for fair wear and tear. We carry out regular property inspections throughout the term of the tenancy, which makes certain that excellent property standards are maintained. We also offer a £1,000 indemnity per property to cover any work that may be needed at the end of the agreement.
