I am an owner of several properties. In the past I have worked for a small organisation supporting persons with mental ill health in my own and my company’s private accommodation. In 2012 it was decided that we would cease our contract with local government because of increasing paperwork and returns and reduction in contract price. Most of our client/tenants chose to stay in their accommodation, some having been tenants for 7/8 years with the unpaid support of ourselves and the Community Mental Health Team if/when required. We usually see our tenants at least weekly.
Now, one of my tenants has left which means I have a void. The accommodation is a house which was shared, one tenant living downstairs and one upstairs both with own lounge, bedroom, (2 upstairs which is where the vacancy is) and own bathrooms, but sharing one kitchen (Tea making and microwave facilities available for upstairs).. My conundrum is – how can I let this space!!? Do I go to an agency, if I let it privately, how can I obtain references, do I charge a deposit etc. etc.
Any advice/support much appreciated
