Our service

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.

Benefits of letting your property with us

  • Guaranteed rent payment for the term of the tenancy: No loss of rent. Rent paid on time in full every month (by us). Rent, set at the LHA rate + 10%
  • Cash incentive: For each property you place with us through the Rent Guarantee Scheme we will give you a one-off cash incentive
  • 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 on any potential tenants we put forward to you
  • Accompanied viewings: All property viewings will be arranged by us and will be fully accompanied with timely feedback to you
  • Deposit Bond: We will provide one month's deposit bond to cover the required deposit (Because we are a local authority providing a bond, there is no requirement for you to register the deposit).
  • Inventory and regular inspections: We will compile an inventory on your behalf before the tenant moves into the property, and will conduct a routine inspection six-monthly. We will also carry out a check-out inspection.

Are you an HMO landlord? We offer a service for you too!

  • 5-year rent guarantee agreement
  • Up to 5 weeks deposit bond
  • Cash incentive
  • Rents of up to £525 per room per calendar month
  • 50% contribution towards HMO licence fee (a saving of £551!)

Landlord testimonials – "What are our landlords saying about us"

Hi Stephanie, I would like to thank you for your professionalism in finding Jenny (new tenant) for us

I'm very happy with the excellent service you are providing (Private landlord)

I would have no problem in recommending the service you provide to other agents and tenants alike.

A really effective way of helping with tenants that do not quite fit agents' criteria who had nowhere else to turn unless had a guarantor which you guys effectively are (Private letting agent)

Our local population needs homes. And those homes must accommodate diverse needs and preferences for individuals, couples and families - whilst helping to support the local economy.

Suffolk's growing private rented sector (PRS) should provide the long- and short-term flexibility our county needs to work around occupational or personal commitments. But without safe, healthy and affordable homes, Suffolk's PRS cannot fulfil its role and support the county. So none of us benefit.

With many misunderstandings around the responsibilities and expectations for tenants, landlords and property managers, the Safe Suffolk Renters project strives to help make the change necessary.
