Property Solutions is a Basildon Council private sector incentive scheme specifically for landlords with houses and flats for families to rent. It helps private landlords and agents find suitable tenants to rent their properties quickly and easily.
Property Solutions is aimed at landlords with properties to rent on assured shorthold tenancies within the borough and its surrounding areas.
If you are a landlord with accommodation for rent and would like to explore the possibility of working with Basildon Council we would like to hear from you.
We understand that your property is your investment. With an emphasis on sustainable tenancies and a track record of successfully creating, supporting and sustaining in the region of 11,000 social tenancies, we are delighted to offer you the security of working with an experienced organisation that has a commitment to creating opportunity and getting the basics right.
We can offer you a choice of two free options;
The bond will cover the initial length of the fixed term and will be reviewed in line with future tenancy agreements issued.
** Please be aware that we will not act as a managing agent for the property. The Tenancy Agreement will be between the landlord/agent and the tenant. Landlords are expected to either manage the tenant and the property themselves or appoint a suitable managing agent. However, a dedicated officer will be available to assist and offer advice and support throughout the life of the tenant where required in order to ensure its success**.
