About Us

A lettings agency with a difference

Home Turf Lettings is a not-for-profit social enterprise that specialises in letting private rented accommodation to tenants on low incomes and in housing need. We make it easy, safe and affordable for landlords to rent their properties to those who face barriers in finding housing due to the ever increasing level of rents and upfront fees charged in the private rented market.

Working across the South Gloucestershire, Bristol and Bath & North East Somerset areas, Home Turf Lettings provides landlords with a comprehensive and professional lettings and property management service, with a particular focus on an area of the rental market with which landlords have often struggled.

As part of a housing charity, we are experts in the Local Housing Allowance Market. Our team also has a wealth of experience in housing and the private rented sector, so we really do know how to create and maintain successful tenancies for our tenants and landlords.

 

 

Where did it all begin?

Founded in April 2012 by parent charity Developing Health and Independence (DHI)  and supported with our set up by our partners at Crisis, Home Turf Lettings celebrated our 5th birthday earlier this year. So far we have housed over 200 people who would have otherwise been homeless or living in unsafe or unsuitable housing. From young people and single individuals to families; we are making a real difference to peoples lives.  Help us do more!

Our Tenants

One thing that all our tenants have in common is that they are facing barriers in finding safe and affordable housing in the private sector. Rising rents and agents fees are just one part of the problem. The stigma about people on low incomes and/or claiming benefits is also a huge problem. A lot of our tenants do come from disadvantaged backgrounds, but we only work with those we feel will be successful in their tenancy and will look after the property they are renting from us. All of our tenants have been fully assessed and referenced prior to being offered a property and we continue to offer, or signpost them to, appropriate support as and when needed through their tenancy.

We know that it’s very important to you that your property is looked after.  We are very confident in our tenant selection and that’s why we are prepared to “put our money where our mouth is” with our leasing service, whereby we are responsible for handing your property back to you in the condition you gave it to us (less fair wear and tear).
