Has anyone released their property to or entered into short-term lease arrangements with a managing agent who then goes on to organise the accommodation and support services for Exempt providers in the Birmingham area?
Are you an Agent that provides properties for this purpose?
I am keen to determine if the same Agents also take on houses for the purposes of family temporary/emergency accommodation for either the same Providers or for the Council direct?
At one time you used to be able to release your property to the Council direct, but not anymore. I understand they are looking at measures to encourage LLs/owners to ‘micro tender’ – in other words, offer up properties to the Council for this purpose….but how long is a piece of string?
Meanwhile, I have properties in areas where licencing has now been banned (to try and stop the rise in EA and issues that come from this), but where there is a shortage of family-sized properties. There is zero reason/too high a risk for me to rent to benefits families directly, but I would consider leasing them to BCC so they could use it as temp accommodation.
Is anyone in the same boat?
