Landlords

Information and advice for landlords

Telford HomeFinder was created to provide residents with details of properties for private let with the added reassurance of council accreditation.

Landlords, agents and properties are included in the accreditation scheme.

Telford & Wrekin Council receives a large volume of enquiries from residents seeking housing and actively promotes private let through Telford HomeFinder as an alternative to social letting.

Landlords can join the scheme for an annual fee of just £50.

To find out more complete our online enquiry form, contact us by email homeimprovementteam@telford.gov.uk or by phone 01952 381940.

Please note: There is a requirement to attend a one-day workshop which is free. The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • landlord and tenant rights and responsibilities
  • deposits
  • ending a tenancy
  • Housing Benefit and Council Tax
  • Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS)
  • safety checks
  • Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
  • Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO)
