YorHome announces home improvement grants and 12 months rent up-front for new landlords

City of York Council’s not-for-profit letting agency YorHome is offering new incentives for landlords signing with us. Besides offering probably the lowest management fees in the city, we’re now offering market-beating benefits of 12-month’s rent up front and funding for certain home improvements.

Anyone with a residential property in or immediately around York who is looking for a decent year-round rental income, is charged just 9% all-inclusive management fee – that’s 3% lower than any other letting agency we’ve seen in York. We keep landlords costs lower still by not charging any extra for inventories or extending a tenancy, for example: it’s just one flat fee. Landlords staying with us won’t have to pay the fifth year’s fees, either.

In addition, landlords who sign up with us now can benefit from time-limited offers. These include us paying 12-month’s rent up front and us funding certain home improvements to improve your property’s quality and to help make it ready to let.

We will help your property become someone’s much-needed home and hope. Let it with us and save a household from homelessness or we could let it as part of our work to settle refugees in York, in safety.

Cllr Michael Pavlovic, Executive Member for Housing at City of York Council, said:

“Running a not-for-profit letting agency means our focus is on the landlords and tenants, and giving both outstanding support to ensure properties are well-managed and profitable.

“I’m delighted that we can offer these market-beating benefits for new landlords signing up with us. If you’re looking for 12-months rent up front and funding for property improvements, please contact us right away on 01904 555700. The team looks forward to working with you.”
