South Ayrshire Council have launched a new lettings agency to ensure everyone can access better housing.

The ‘Your Choice’ social lettings agency is different from the others, with the focus on helping those on low incomes or people who have experienced homelessness.

The flexible allocation and eligibility policies make a big difference, and the council also takes into consideration unique circumstances and housing history. They will be working closely with tenants, to not only get them the homes they want, but improve their welfare too.

Council workers are keen to hear from private landlords that want to help them make a difference. They are providing a rent guarantee for the first three months, prepare all the lease documents and offer support throughout the tenancy.

Councillor Philip Saxton, Housing and Community Wellbeing Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: “This is an exciting new housing initiative which will bring about lasting change.

“First and foremost, we want to meet the needs of our tenants and ensure landlords are supported.

“We’re determined to set the standard for quality, value for money and professionally managed property and give everyone a home they can be proud of.”
