In demand properties

We are looking for all sizes and types of properties in most areas across the city. Popular areas for our tenants include Arbourthorne, Heeley, Parsons Cross, Hillsborough, Sharrow, Handsworth and Chapeltown.

We are looking for properties with rent charges that are around Local Housing Allowance rates.

How rent is paid

Tenants who use our service are usually in receipt of some benefits, even when working. We work with the tenant to manage their housing claim and, where appropriate, apply on your behalf for alternative payment arrangements at the start of the tenancy.
