As Capital Letters can issue assured shorthold tenancies as a private landlord, it is often possible to end a homelessness duty once we have become the tenant’s landlord.
Private sector leasing
We also procure private sector leased properties as a means of reducing reliance on expensive nightly-paid accommodation.
By removing unproductive competition between the boroughs, which drives up rents, and duplication of effort, we are increasing the supply of accommodation for councils to house people and offering landlords and managing agents an improved service.
Homeless households benefit too – by being placed in suitable accommodation more quickly and as locally as possible, minimising the disruption to education, employment and support which often follows an out-of-area move.
