The Rent Deposit/Bond Scheme Scheme offers help to homesless people looking to rent a home from a private landlord.
The Rent Deposit Scheme comes in the form of a bond or guarantee which replaces a deposit with the Tenancy Protection Scheme. The bond or guarantee acts as a deposit to cover rent arrears / wilful damage up to the value of the bond. We may also sometimes apply for cash deposits for rent in advance from the discretionary housing payments or from the homeless prevention fund.
To qualify for the scheme you must:
You need to:
|Local Housing Allowance Rate||Weekly||Monthly|
|Shared room rate||£60||£260|
(All properties inspected in line with Rent With Confidence guidelines and much achieve a rating of 3*s or above.)
