Salford City Council has launched its own letting agency, Salford Property Link, in an effort to encourage private landlords to help reduce the massive social housing waiting list.
The new agency offers landlords different levels of service from advertising and tenant matching right through to full property management, guaranteed rent and a property repairs service.
Many of those seeking new homes are employed. but housing officers will work with any who are on benefits to make sure they are claiming their full entitlement and can meet their rent obligations.
City Mayor Paul Dennett said: “There are huge waiting lists for social housing and not enough to meet demand. There is great potential for landlords to work with us and get tenants into the right property.”
The agency is part of a package of measures Salford City Council is undertaking to address the national housing crisis. It has launched Dérive, a wholly owned company, to provide more social housing, initially through buying off plan, but ultimately to build affordable housing through the development and sale of other homes at market value.
It is also offering extra housing support to armed forces veterans and their families who may have difficulties with setting up new homes or are struggling with their current tenancy.
