Watford's HomeLet scheme

About Homelet

Do you have a property to rent? Why not rent through Watford Homelet.

Watford Homelet is a free of charge, private renting incentive scheme run by Watford Borough Council. Watford Homelet matches landlords who have available properties with prospective tenants looking for a new home.

Renting privately is a popular option for many families, but they are often prevented from doing so because they can’t afford the deposits, fees and rent in advance.  This means they often ask the council for help.

Homelet can assist buy covering some of those costs, as well as offering the landlord a financial incentive in return for letting to one of our clients.

We have a budget of up to £3500 per property to spend as best suits the landlord and tenants. For example:

  • Rent in advance
  • Rent top up (paid at start of tenancy in advance for life of tenancy)
  • Tenant fees
  • Landlord and/or agent incentives
  • Deposit ( if bond not preferred)

Ideally, we are looking for unfurnished properties in the Watford area, with the highest demand for 2 bedroom properties. However we are happy to consider all properties types, sizes and locations.

If you are a landlord with an available property please contact the Watford HomeLet team on tel: 01923 278407 or via email at:  homelet@watford.gov.uk
