Properties to rent

If you are a landlord with a property for rent, or have an empty property you would like to discuss, we would like to hear from you.

The Housing Solutions Support Scheme is a Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council scheme specifically to help prospective tenants access the private rented sector. We are always looking for landlords/letting agents with houses and flats available to rent. The scheme helps private 
landlords and agents find suitable tenants to rent their properties as quickly as possible.

The scheme is aimed at landlords/letting agents with properties to rent with an assured shorthold tenancy  agreement within the Borough, ideally with a 6 or 12 month initial tenancy.

List your private rental property

Complete our rental property form and we will contact you after we have reviewed your information.

We can offer

  • First month's rent in advance paid via BACS direct to the landlord/letting agent

  • Free property inspection to check compliance with the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (required by legislation)
  • Help and assistance throughout the life of the tenancy from our Housing Solutions Team, Landlord Solutions Project and local support agencies
  • Free information and guidance
  • We will assist in providing suitable leads for your property, but you choose the tenant for your property
  • If required, payment for the cost of one annual membership to the National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA).
  • If required, payment for the cost of a rent guarantee insurance policy to cover the initial tenancy duration (this policy will need to be sourced by the landlord/letting agent)

In return, we ask for

  • Ready to let or coming soon properties
  • Dwelling and furniture (if furnished) must be maintained or provided to a reasonable standard
  • Property must be in reasonable decorative order

  • The property must comply with fire safety regulations. Smoke detectors must be fitted on  each floor, and a Carbon Monoxide detector where there is a solid fuel burning appliance

Tenancy agreement

The Tenancy Agreement will be between the landlord/letting agent and the tenant. We are not able to take on the management of any tenancy or offer any leasing or guaranteed rent type scheme.

Landlords are expected to either manage the tenant and the property themselves or appoint a suitable managing agent. However, a dedicated team will be available to assist and offer advice and support throughout the life of the tenancy where required to ensure its success.
