What we do
Lets for Life are the link between the landlord's house and the tenant's home. We are widening the availability of specialised supported housing for people with learning disabilities with complex support needs.
The tenants we provide housing to needs specialist types of properties and tenancies that some landlords are unsure about. This then limits people's opportunities for finding and renting appropriate quality homes.
We lease properties owned by private landlords and rent them to our tenants. The private rental sector is growing and this can offer more choice to tenants with learning disabilities with complex support needs. Although we have found that landlords can find it difficult to offer the required level of housing management. Lets for Life offer specialised and personalised housing management - to keep tenants comfortable and safe in their homes.
Being registered as a Private Registered Provider with the Homes England, we work professionally to a high standard, whilst never losing focus of our tenants' wellbeing.
Lets for Life break down the bureaucracy and complicated process to assist both landlord and tenant to lead to long-term successful tenancies.
