How does it work?

Once you have found an affordable property, you will need to provide your Housing Officer with the following information:

  • Property address
  • Landlord/agent information
  • Weekly rental cost
  • Total bond or Rent in Advance required

Your Housing Officer will complete a Help to Rent form which will be passed to our Affordable Housing Officer.

An inspection will be arranged for the property to ensure that it meets our property standards.

If the property meets with our requirements, then a bond will be paid direct to your landlord/agent and it will be secured in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

Your bond will be placed in a Tenancy Deposit Scheme by your landlord or agent.


Your property MUST be inspected before we can process your application.

If you sign your tenancy before we have completed a property inspection, you will not be eligible for support from the Help to Rent fund and you  will be asked to source alternative funding or fund the bond and Rent in Advance yourself.
