Central Suffolk Lettings
Central Suffolk Lettings has been developed by Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils. We want to increase access to good quality homes, in the private rented sector, for eligible residents.
We provide a lettings service to private sector landlords with a property to rent out. We understand how important your property is, and care about the service we offer to you.
What we offer
To best support you, as a landlord, we provide a range of services:
- Rent Guarantee Scheme:
A hassle free way to rent out your property, with a cash incentive when you join the scheme. Rent is guaranteed throughout the tenancy (set at Local Housing Allowance rate +10%). We carry out a number of checks on tenants. The tenancy is managed by us throughout from inventory to check out inspections - we'll make sure your property is well looked after.
- Introduction only Scheme:
If you have a property to rent and are looking for a reliable tenant with references, we can recommend them directly to you and you would manage the tenancy going forward. There is no charge for this service.
- Market Rent Scheme:
Let us be your high street letting agency. This scheme allows you to set the rent at market rent following our valuation and offers you extra protection with a deposit bond.
- Agent offer:
Are you an agent? We want to hear from you. Do you have a landlord looking for an alternative method of renting? We can offer you a cash incentive of £250, if you introduce them to us and they sign up to the guarantee scheme. There is a cash incentive of £150 if they sign up for the Market Rent Scheme.
Rent Guarantee Scheme
- Guaranteed rent payment for the term of the tenancy:
No loss of rent. Rent paid on time in full every month (by us).
- Cash incentive:
For each property you place with us through this scheme, we will give you a one-off cash incentive of up to £750
- No fees… no commission:
We provide a free service, so there is no commission to pay and no hidden charges
- Assessment of potential tenants:
We carry out full affordability assessments and credit checks on tenants we put forward to you
- Inventory and regular inspections:
We compile an inventory on your behalf before the tenant moves in, and will conduct routine inspections throughout the tenancy

- A property in good repair, which complies with the Housing, Health and Safety Rating System
- Minimum Energy EPC Rating of E or above
