Property Links

House for rentProperty Links matches people facing homelessness with private landlords looking for long-term tenants.

Unlike many letting schemes, we don’t believe in a one size fits all approach. We tailor our support for each tenant, based upon their needs.

  • You retain full control over your property.
  • Income assessments completed on potential tenants.
  • A housing assessment.
  • Full photographic inventory at the start of the tenancy.
  • Assistance for tenants to claim housing benefit, or universal credit.

  • Regular tenancy inspections during the first 12 months.
