Cornwall searches for Landlords to help stop homelessnessMake Text Bigger
This week Cornwall Housing Private Lets starts its search for more landlords, with a range of services, to increase the number of safe and secure homes in Cornwall and help prevent anyone from sleeping on the streets.
Through partnership working with Cornwall Council, Cornwall Housing has been successfully awarded funding under the Rapid Rehousing Pathway initiative to expand as a letting’s agency with social values. This specialist service has been set up to offer help for vulnerable people who are not owed a housing duty and need additional support to access and maintain accommodation within the private rented sector.
Building partnerships with landlords through a transparent relationship to help make an informed decision, means the team will be able to offer a portfolio of properties to give support to rough sleepers, former rough sleepers and those at risk of rough sleeping.
Nick Cross, Managing Director of Cornwall Housing said: “This is a unique offer to any private landlord and will help to fulfil our duty to help homeless people and to prevent homelessness in Cornwall. Both tenants and landlords will benefit from having access to our tenancy sustainment support. Whether you are a seasoned landlord or new to the sector our Private Lets team will tailor the tenancy to suit each opportunity.”
With pre-assessed tenants ready to start an agreement, homeowners can have the confidence that the Cornwall Housing team has the knowledge and expertise for a seamless and well-supported experience with minimal risk. This service will have no upfront costs and the option for a free tenant finder service for self-managing landlords.
Homes of all sizes are needed in Falmouth/Penryn, Penzance, Truro, Newquay, Camborne, Redruth, St Austell, Bodmin, Liskeard and surrounding areas.
Interested landlords should speak to the Cornwall Housing Private Lets team on 01872 224556 for properties in the west of the county or 01208 265616 in the east, or by email at email@example.com
