  • Tenant rating system could help people with vulnerabilities find accommodation

    The National Landlords Association believe that by granting prospective tenants with a rating of green, amber or red depending on their behaviour, landlords will be more willing to provide the tenant with support.

    They believe that this would make landlords more confident in letting their properties to people who have vulnerabilities. The suggestion is based upon a scheme by Hartlepool Council so that people with vulnerabilities who have been unable to get landlord references after they have left prison or been homeless get a chance of finding a property, reportsInside Housing.

    The Hartlepool scheme has been in place since 2008 and now the NLA is calling for more councils to adopt a similar approach due to the Localism Act 2011 allowing council to discharge their homeless duty into the private rented sector.
