Private Sector Lettings Scheme

Bradford Council’s Private Sector Lettings Scheme is a free tenant finder service for landlords and agents. The scheme helps landlords by matching their properties to people who are looking for accommodation in the private rented sector across Bradford district.

If you have a property to let and would like to know more, why not get in touch with the Private Sector Lettings Scheme to see how we can help you - our contact details are on this page. You will not be committing to anything by getting in touch with us for an initial chat. 

There are a number of landlord benefits that come with using the Private Sector Lettings Scheme.  There are no costs to you for joining the scheme and we will advertise your property to potential tenants on your behalf. However, at the same time, you retain full control of your property so you are under no obligation to take a tenant and can continue to advertise elsewhere.

The current scheme incentives are:

  • Rent in advance - equivalent to one month's rent
  • £1,000 cash contribution towards initial costs such as repairs, Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and gas and electrical safety certificates (1 bed and family accommodation only)
  • Rent guarantee
  • Bond guarantee for damage

The amount of rent guarantee and bond guarantee depends on the type of accommodation being offered:

  • For 1 bed self-contained and family accommodation - 6 months' rent guarantee + £1,000 bond guarantee for damage, valid for 12 months
  • For HMO accommodation - 2 months’ rent guarantee + £500 bond guarantee, valid for 6 months.
