Maidstone Borough Council has put out an urgent call looking for landlords with self-contained one bedroomed flats or studios to house residents in need across the borough.
The council’s Housing First scheme provides full-dedicated support for landlords throughout the whole life of the tenancy as well as a £2,000 one-off incentive payment. The Council will also pay six weeks rent in advance, along with a 12-month extensive insurance policy covering both Landlord and tenant.
Cllr Simon Webb, Vice Chair of Communities, Housing and Environment Committee said: “Finding a home to help people back into independent living is very challenging, so we urge any landlord with property that meets the criteria to come forward to help us give someone a fresh start for 2022.
“The tenancy will be fixed for 12 months and we will work with you to make sure the property is suitable and affordable for the tenant prior to any letting. We can also request that the rent is paid directly to the landlord or agent.
“Private landlords in and around the Maidstone area play an important role in helping us to resolve people’s housing needs. We are encouraging landlords who are interested in the scheme to contact MBC to find out more about the project.”
The Council will carry out a joint inspection of each property with landlords prior to each let to ensure safety standards have been met and will also require safety certificates EICR /GAS Safe and EPC for each property.
For further information, the Housing Team can be contacted on on telephone: 01622 602252, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
