Bond Guarantee Scheme
We aim to help qualify single people over 18 years of age couple and families, who urgently need housing, to move into privately rented accommodation. Where they are unable to find a cash deposit required by a landlord, our scheme can provide a Bond Guarantee Certificate.
The scheme works in partnership with local landlords (and agents) who are members of the Council's Landlord Charter to help people secure rented accommodation within the private sector.
The Bond Guarantee will guarantee up to 4 weeks rent, up to a maximum of £500, which the landlord may make a claim against should there be damage or theft at the end of the tenancy agreement period eg 6 month assured short hold period or 12 month assured short hold period.
Qualification criteria must be met by all applicants, making an application does not guarantee that you will be successful in securing a Bond Guarantee Certificate.
