Information for agents

Wigan Housing Solutions is a community interest company, and as such, our commitment to serving the community is overseen by regulation. Our business is to let and manage properties directly for landlords & agents, and to manage properties leased by Wigan Council from private landlords. 

We also operate the Wigan Bond Scheme, through which we provide a bond guarantee service under our Home Finder Scheme for people seeking rehousing in private rented accommodation, and also in conjunction with our Let Only Service.

Our objective is to help people in housing need who are unable to afford to purchase or to retain their own homes or who are not eligible for, or who would otherwise have difficulty in accessing, social housing, to achieve sustainable housing solutions in the private rented sector.  We seek to achieve our social objectives by providing landlords and agents with first rate letting and management services and effective advice and support services for tenants.

This section will provide you with information on our Let Only Service:

If you require details on the Wigan Bond Scheme, please contact us and we will forward an information pack to you.

If you wish to discuss any matters contained in the pack in further detail, or have any other questions about our services, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

The Wigan Bond Scheme

This service provides a bond guarantee to landlords on behalf of tenants who are unable to afford a security deposit. As this service does not involve the landlord’s taking a security deposit, it is outside of the three mandatory government schemes in place.  The Bond Scheme can be used alone, where tenants find their own suitable accommodation under our Home Finder Scheme, or in conjunction with the Let Only and Housing Management services.
