Our Policy Regarding Benefits
We do accept tenants on benefits so long as one of the points below is met:
- The council pay rent in advance.
- The tenant has a guarantor who must be someone in a stable job and/or with their own property. The guarantor will pay the rent and the tenant will pay the guarantor. Typically the guarantor will be a parent and must fully comprehend their responsibility regarding the tenancy agreement.
- A deposit equal to three to six month rent is paid - a council deposit bond may be used to cover some of the deposit.
Unfortunately these policies are strictly adhered to and there is no flexibility.
