The landlord and agent offer
Who are our tenants?
Families who are either living in unsuitable temporary accommodation or about to be made homeless. Many include family members who work, though most families claim housing benefit or universal credit. The council will make sure families are suitable for your property and that they can afford the rent.
How we help your tenants
Some families need extra help if their circumstances change during the tenancy – particularly if their benefits are affected. We offer free support for families and our landlords throughout the tenancy. We deal directly with councils and other agencies to prevent arrears or other problems.
How does it work?
We do a free, no-obligation inspection to confirm your property meets our quality standard
The council finds a suitable family and checks they can afford the rent
You meet the tenants before agreeing the tenancy
We deal directly with the council and set up everything for you. You just need to arrange to show the property to your tenants
The tenancy agreement (AST) is between you and the tenant. In return for the incentive payment, most landlords agree a two-year tenancy
If there are any problems during the tenancy, we can help you sort them out
Find out your rent and incentive payment
London Housing Allowance (LHA) rate is the highest rent that can be paid to landlords working with Capital Letters. Rates differ across London and are calculated by a government agency.
After a property is let through us, you receive a substantial cash payment. Simply enter your details to find the LHA rent and incentive payable for your property.
