Landlords & Managing agents

For Landlords, Capital Letters offers a simpler and more straightforward interface to connect tenants with properties. We operate a central point of contact for landlords and agents who own or manage properties across London. This stops the need to contact individual boroughs giving different levels of communication and customer service.

Capital Letters will provide landlord support and tenancy sustainment function and across the range of the properties it has procured or manages. Our goal is to prevent the recycling of households who have been allocated settled accommodation from re-entering the homelessness/Temporary accommodation system.

We offer leased schemes where landlords prefer no void periods and a hands-off approach, and we offer private tenancies for landlords or agents where choice of tenants is important.
To ensure the property, landlord and tenants are looked after, we will also offer the option of an insurance package that will cover all three areas for rent arrears, damages and legal costs.

These services will be carefully co-ordinated between Capital Letters and the participating boroughs, to ensure that services complement those being provided by the host borough.

Capital Letters will reward landlords and agents who have high property standards, together with correct certification, with tenants and incentive payments within seven working days of the property being accepted.

Over the next three years, Capital Letters will procure accommodation for around 20,000 households for use by our member boroughs. This is supported by £38m MHCLG funding from the Flexible Homelessness Support Grant. The grant enables member boroughs to reduce the costs associated with the procurement of properties.

Capital Letters is a publicly-owned social business that is tasked with providing properties for the many boroughs across the whole of London where the demand for all properties (especially family size ones) is greater than the supply.
