A private lettings agency run by a council is holding open days to woo potential landlord clients.
Test Valley Lettings is later this month hosting two open days for new and existing landlords.
Its advertising says it offers landlords “a no fee, hassle-free tenancy service” with services customisable to meet individual needs and including separate council officers allocated to support both landlord and tenant.
Richard Bowyer, a current landlord with Test Valley Lettings, says: “They are a good one stop shop. They find the tenant, do the check-in, inventory, tenancy, payments and liaise with the tenant if there are any issues. It makes my job easier.”
A council spokesperson adds: “Test Valley Lettings aims to help prevent homelessness. The council has tenants waiting for all types and sizes of property, so if you think you could help a household in Test Valley find a home, please get in touch.”
The drop-in open days will be held on Thursday November 16 from 3pm to 6pm in Romsey, and on Thursday November 30 from 4pm to 7pm in Andover. New and existing landlords are welcome.
There will also be trades people on hand to speak to and the opportunity to network with other landlords.
