Private landlord incentive scheme

As a private landlord, you can benefit from letting your property to people who have registered to join our housing waiting list.

Our private landlord incentive scheme (PLIS) is available to private landlords and managing agents primarily within Thurrock. It offers a one-off, non-refundable cash payment for taking tenants that we nominate and vet for assured shorthold tenancies of 12 to 24 months.

If you choose to work with us, we will:

  • help you find tenants for your property
  • use our vetting process to make sure the tenant is eligible to rent a property
  • pay a cash incentive equal to the first 2 months' rent
  • pay up to £300 towards your rent guarantee insurance
  • register you for free with the UK Landlord Accreditation Partnership
  • offer you dedicated support for tenancy-related matters

We offer highly competitive rent payments and charge no commission or administration fees.

Accredited landlords may be eligible for grant funding from us towards major works in their rented property.

If you are a private landlord or managing agent, you can express your interest in this scheme using our 'request a service' form below.
