We offer competitive prices, high-quality homes and a top-quality, highly-ethical and professional landlord service.
Most of our homes are social and affordable rent homes, which are let at lower rents to people on lower incomes. But we also have homes which we rent out to people with a steady job at standard, market rent for around 6 to 12 months. You can see the market rent homes we've got available in your area below.
We've got homes across Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire. And we’ve got a wide range – from comfortable family houses to modern apartments, through to specially-adapted buildings and extra care homes for older people.
We're one of the largest providers of affordable homes and housing-related services in the south of England, based in Hampshire
We’re locally based with a great reputation for high quality homes, customer service and quality workmanship
Anyone can apply for one of our Market rent properties. We ask you to register your interest through Rightmove and will aim to respond to you by the end of the next working day. Homes are then allocated on a first come first served basis. We don’t take holding fees and so we do need any applicant information and references to be completed within the timeframes set.
We carry out affordability, employment referencing, landlord referencing and credit checks for all of our market rental properties.
If you’ve applied for a new build you may be contacted by our agent, Property Eagle, to carry out credit checks, employment references and landlord references on our behalf. We then complete the affordability checks and have final discretion on a letting.
We do have some Intermediate market rental properties, these are let at 80% of market rates. You must earn less than £80,000 per year as a household and meet the necessary affordability and credit checks.
Once you have applied for a property and we have received your application forms and references, we’ll then check you can afford the property and have a satisfactory credit score. If you’re in receipt of benefits then we can help you calculate what you would be entitled to (please note our market rental properties will be subject to Local housing allowance rates and Housing benefit or Universal credit may not cover the full rent).
We expect that rent and debt payments don’t exceed 45% of your total income.
If the ratios are over our accepted threshold, we won’t be able to accept you as a tenant and you may need to look for a cheaper property.
You’ll need to be able to prove your income. You’ll need to provide 3 months wage slips and bank statements or if you’re self-employed, your most recent tax return.
We use an independent credit agency to carry out our referencing. You’ll be required to have a credit score of ‘good – fair’, along with passing the affordability check.
We won’t normally accept applicants with County Court Judgement (CCJ) or Individual Voluntary Arrangement(IVA), if you apply we will review each case individually. We don’t accept guarantors.
You’ll have to pay a security deposit which will be 1 month’s rent. Your deposit will be protected by the Deposit Protection Scheme (DPS).
You’ll then be required to pay a minimum of 1 month’s rent in advance, plus the remaining days of the month in which you sign, the day before you receive the keys to your new home.
For example, if you sign for your property on 23 November, you would need to pay the remaining days in November, the rent for December and your deposit. Your rent would then be due again on 1 January.
Your monthly rent will be paid in advance by direct debit on the first day of each month and we’ll inform you of the exact cost, depending on the date you move in.
