Due to a recent increase in the number of people waiting to go into rented accommodation, Fareham Borough Council is looking for landlords to join their property rental scheme.
Our AFFORD scheme offers landlords a number of advantages including:
· No set up fees
· 6 month rent guarantee
· Protection against any potential damage caused (up to equivalent of one month's rent)
· Access to knowledgeable staff and support
· Support with paperwork
Landlords who rent their properties through the scheme don't have to worry about the hassle of finding and checking a tenant or arranging viewings – as this will be done by our Accommodation Officer.
Fareham Borough Council is also keen to encourage landlords who may have empty properties which need repair works to come forward. As an incentive we offer an interest free loan of up to £10,000 towards the cost of the work, for landlords who can provide accommodation to someone referred by our housing team.
Executive member for Housing and Health, Councillor Brian Bayford, said: "AFFORD is a great scheme, and I would encourage those with empty properties to sign up with us. As well as the benefits to landlords, this scheme also helps people in the Borough waiting for housing."
The Council and our Partners can also lease properties from private landlords. Landlords interested in this, or in the AFFORD scheme, should contact our Accommodation Officer, Anita O'Leary, on 01329 824649.
