Harrow Council’s new internal lettings agency has now found over 70 families homes.
The new service – Help2Let – plays the role which would otherwise be played by a private letting agency, matching tenants to available accomodation. Officers say it is it cheaper than using private agencies. The council also provides the landlords with a bond of two months’ rent.
More than 75 private landlords have signed up with Help2Let. See the Harrow Observer coverage.
