Thurrock Council's Cabinet member for housing, Cllr Barry Johnson, reminds landlords of the many benefits when privately letting homes in partnership with the council through the private rents scheme.
Cllr Johnson said: "Working in partnership with the council provides a unique range of benefits including a fixed contract, security of tenure and no hidden agency fees.
"We have a pool of verified tenants currently waiting to be housed and will work with you to help you meet government regulations and ensure you find a tenant to let your property."
The scheme is available to private landlords and managing agents within Thurrock and surrounding areas. Benefits include:
- dedicated support throughout the duration of the tenancy
- £399 contribution towards a Rent Guarantee Insurance Policy
- registration to the UK Landlord Accreditation Partnership
- a professional service without agency fees
