Letting services and initiatives for private landlords and agents

If you are a landlord interested in letting your property in Birmingham or the surrounding area, we would like to hear from you.

Please contact us today at AFT@birmingham.gov.uk to discuss your property with one of our team, who will be glad to advise and assist you.

Our offer to you:

  • Free letting service and several financial packages to choose from
  • Custom property matching service for landlord and tenant
  • Free property inspection to check compliance with the Housing, Health and Safety Rating System
  • Complete background checks, including right to rent checks, and ensure tenants provide all the documents needed
  • Assess prospective tenants' income and expenditure to ensure affordability
  • Arrange viewings and meetings
  • Complete inventory and inspections at the beginning of the tenancy
  • Practical assistance and support with any issues that may arise within the tenancy, such as rent arrears or disrepair
  • In cases where an applicant receives Universal Credit or Housing Benefit, we can make arrangements for the rental element to be paid to the landlord at the beginning of the tenancy

All the above are provided free of charge to landlords.

In return, we ask for:

  • Self-contained properties of all types and sizes
  • That the property is in a good state of repair and has a well-maintained heating system
  • A valid gas safety certificate from a Gas Safe registered installer
