Advice for letting agents and landlords

Information for letting agents

The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea operates a scheme to house applicants to whom a homeless duty is owed. We currently work with a number of letting agents and housing associations who manage accommodation on our behalf both in and out of the borough.

If you are a managing agent who would like to work with us, and can provide accommodation at a competitive price, we would be interested to hear from you. Please complete the questionnaire below. The questionnaire also contains information about the management and property standards we work to.

Suppliers wishing to work with the Council must:

  • not have any convictions for fraud, corruption, serious environmental breaches, or other relevant offences
  • have relevant insurances if they are required
  • provide relevant policy statements relating to health and safety, sustainability, and equal opportunities as requested
  • guarantee that all privately managed temporary accommodation will meet the minimum property standards we work to

Please complete the questionnaire:
