Council Guaranteed Rent Scheme Islington

Here at Lease for Life, our free services support landlords throughout the area of Islington. Here’s how:

Landlords wishing to make the most of their property investment can make use of our FREE LHA landlord services Islington locals need to thrive in this popular residential area.


Providing equal housing opportunities Islington families can benefit from in a busy and popular area to live, can be a challenge. Understandably, Landlords wishing to make the most of their assets will want, not only to meet with overheads and expenses attached to property maintenance, but enough of an income to make the time and effort put into the venture worth the while. Most landlords, and agencies feel that the best way to make sure they get a reliable tenant and a rent guarantee is to aim for only high earning families with high income jobs. However, as the economy is ever changing and often unsure for everyone, and the backgrounds and situations of all people are diverse and can be complex, this is not always the best way to find the right tenants for you.

In 2008, local authorities realised that it was difficult for some, who provided vital and beneficial services to the communities, to find housing in the areas where their families where located, where they worked, and where more opportunities where open to them and their immediate household. To provide everyone with affordable homes, Islington was one of the boroughs of London that introduced a council guaranteed rent scheme. Islington landlords can now therefore, concentrate on finding tenants that are specifically suited to the needs of the residency, without it putting their investment at risk. In fact, with our landlord tenant match Islington service, we can make it even more secure by finding tenants that will not need to move on with local rent costs that are beyond their reach, therefore avoiding a revolving door of tenants.


This not only makes your tenants feel more secure and happier in the property, therefore increasing your good relationship with them, it cuts down the costs associated with a preparing the property for new residents.

To support the local community in this, and to help landlords find the right tenants for them, we work hard to break down the barriers and myths surrounding a tenancy. Our tenant mentoring Islington service helps put you in contact with prospective families and occupants suited to your property. At all times, you are in control and have the final say as to who you will sign the tenancy agreement with. By meeting each applicant, you can get to know much more about them, therefore removing any apprehension you may feel, and the concern over having an unsuitable arrangement.

Often, there is a lot more help and support available than most locals realise, and to connect with these can be difficult when you do not know what you are looking for. We use our expert knowledge and trusted advise service (please see our reviews on Trustpilot) to help tenants that need to make use of the local housing allowance schemes and financial support, such as universal credit Islington locals can benefit from.

To find out more about the local housing allowance, Islington landlords can check out our LHA page, or call our number and a member of our team would be happy to provide FREE advice and support. Alternatively, you can leave us a message and we would be more than happy to get back to you.

So, if you need to know more about the rent guarantee for landlords Islington property owners require to provide housing for all, then contact us today. We look forward to working with you.
