Working with private sector landlords
One of our main objectives is to continue to develop our working partnerships with local landlords.
We have reviewed the way in which we work with landlords, including speaking with landlords and tenants about how we can improve our service and increase access to the private rented sector for local households in need. As a result, we have developed a social lettings agency - 'The Rother Letting Service'.
The new scheme matches prospective tenants to private rented accommodation, as well as providing a rent account and general management service.
The council pays the occupier's housing benefit direct to the landlord and dedicated staff visit the tenant on a regular basis to ensure the property is being well maintained.
If The Rother Letting Service is of interest to you, you can find out more at our dedicated website: www.rotherlettings.org.uk
If you have a property to let, please contact one of the officer's who operate the scheme on 01424 787372 email firstname.lastname@example.org
