Lettings for supported living
Finding a match
Zetetick has been renting properties, from one-bedroom flats to large detached houses, from the private rental market since we started in 2007. There are many benefits for landlords and letting agents of working with Zetetick, and we have trusted, longstanding relationships with the landlords and lettings agents we work with.
These are the properties we are currently actively looking for. Please get in touch if you have a property that would be suitable, and read on for more information about the benefits of renting to Zetetick.
Your tenant is Zetetick Housing and the lease is with Zetetick Housing. We pay rents by standing order each month and we also pay the utility bills and any council tax.
We look for 3-year leases on high-quality properties as they will be used to provide comfortable, loved homes to people who wouldn’t otherwise have fair access to the private rental sector. So unlike corporate lets, Zetetick provides real homes rather than temporary accommodation.
Happy landlords and reliable commission for agents
The property couldn’t be in better hands in terms of renting to people who care about the property. Zetetick’s in-house maintenance team carries out regular inspections, has a rolling programme of redecoration, and handles all repairs (including being on call 24/7 for emergencies).
Zetetick provides our tenants with Intensive Housing Management to enable them to sustain their tenancies with us, so we carry out the jobs that regular tenants are expected to do but in reality don’t always do to maintain the property – things like garden maintenance, unblocking sinks, window cleaning, and cleaning of communal areas. Minor issues are therefore much less likely to become a problem.
In addition, with Zetetick you have the guarantee that we will return the property in good order. We hold designated funds specifically for this purpose, so at end-of-term, there is no risk to the landlord of the scenario where a tenant leaves the property in a bad condition and disappears without paying the last rent in order to recoup their deposit.
All of this makes for happy landlords and a reliable stream of income from ongoing rental collections for agents.
Creating new business for lettings agents
Zetetick is a successful charity and is expanding in line with our charitable aim to increase the number of people who can benefit from the kind of best practice supported living housing that we offer.
We will need more properties in new and existing areas to accommodate more tenant referrals, so working with Zetetick should bring more business your way.
Zetetick’s maintenance team continued carrying out emergency repairs during the lockdown, and throughout the Covid-19 pandemic our admin staff have been working as usual but from home where necessary. As an SME we are not a faceless corporation, but people you know by name who you can reach on the other end of the phone when you need to.
Zetetick is good for your brand
It is well known that being aligned with a good cause is good for your brand and good for your business, making it more likely to retain customers and staff. It works particularly well when there is a natural affinity between the parties, so for lettings agents to be associated with a successful housing charity is the perfect fit.
If you have a property that matches the above criteria, or would like to talk to Zetetick about renting to us in the future, get in touch.
