Safe Tenants Make Happy Homes

At HouseLet Direct we believe that high quality, safe rental properties, are good for Tenants, Landlords and communities, and improve the reputation of the private housing sector.

If you are considering arranging a viewing, then our Tenant Renting Guide will explain what information you will need to provide to meet Referencing and Rent Guarantee criteria, and includes prescribed information.

The prescribed information is the version of the document entitled How to rent: the checklist for renting in England (JULY 2018) as published by the Department for Communities and Local Government.

Open Transparent and Fair

We provide services for high quality properties, matching them with referenced and credit checked Tenants, which also reduces the regulatory burden on Councils and helps to create safer, harmonious communities and neighbourhoods. We partner high calibre, safe homes with responsible Tenants.

We only provide services for properties, which meet stringent safety standards, are not HMO’s and where EPC and Gas Safety and certificates and EICRs are available.

In addition, prior to the implementation of the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018, we have proactively ensured all properties have a HHSRS certificate, to confirm that the property is free from Category 1 and 2 Hazards under the Housing Act 2004. All properties are managed and controlled in accordance with the ‘fit and proper person’ test (Housing Act 2004; Section 66) regardless of whether the property is licensed or not. This means that Tenants can rest assured, that not only will they be occupying a safe, secure home, but will not be subjected to unscrupulous charges and fees, face any illegal harassment or eviction and fully comply with the terms of the Tenant Fees Act 2018.

As all properties are subject to stringent checks and safety requirements, we only accept reputable, professional Tenants and do not accept sharers, smokers; or those unable to provide photographic proof of ID, proof of Income, Address, current Landlord Reference, or those without a Bank Account.

In order to comply with the provisions of the Immigration Act 2014; we require all prospective tenants to provide a copy of their UK or EU passport or evidence of leave to remain in the UK. Proof of ID and Proof of Right To Rent acceptable documents include: UK passport, Biometric Residence etc. A simple, interactive guide around which documents are accepted in Right To Rent checks is available from the Gov.uk website.

If you need to advise us of a repair or defect in your rental home, then use our online Report In (RI) / Emergency Report In (ERI) Form to let us know.

or maybe two…

Families can be big or small, but all have a right to live in a #SafeHome.
