Help For Tenants - NO FEES!

Mark
Your original opening post on this thread seems to have lost its way and drifted into another subject matter. Perhaps you should start another one. I think your aim has much merit and if you have responses needing hands on help in my neck of the woods I would be pleased to assist.

Council Guarantee Bonds are useless

I replied on another thread (last week I think) that I would not touch these schemes with a bargepole.
Sorry to say that this OP strengthens that view, so I hope the guy took my advice.

Regarding the clawback, look on this website where you may find some free info and/or get Bill's advice.

I am sure somewhere I have a link to a post of his how to go about tackling the clawback, so if you don't find it on his website post back on here and I'll try and find it

First time landlord needs advice on requirements for first rental

Daniel
Personally I wouldn't touch the council scheme with a bargepole.
These terms should be a red flag to you:
"partner agencies" , "neighbourhood safety officer", "tenancy relationship officers"

First time landlord needs advice on requirements for first rental

Dan
With respect, reading your post I think you need hands on help to guide you through the landlord/tenant process.
Being a landlord is not a simple matter of finding a tenant and watching the rent roll in (if only). Mistakes or misunderstandings can be very very costly.
The local council helping you sounds like they are looking to house vulnerable/difficult tenants with you (I may be wrong), which may be something you don't want.
Please take care.
