Landlords Information

Light for Life’s Housing Centre offers a comprehensive Tenant Finding Service working alongside various Private Landlords and Letting Agents in both the Southport and wider Sefton areas. The Housing Centre is located in a vibrant part of Southport and we deal with many customers from all walks of life looking for all types of accommodation.

The Housing Centre offers a warm, friendly welcome to all customers looking for help to resolve their housing needs. We are also able to provide advice to landlords including a landlord and tenant support and liaison service.

All clients in need of accommodation are fully assessed across a broad range of need. This is to find out a little more about them in order to provide the best outcome for their circumstances.

The Accommodation Coordinator is responsible for appropriately matching tenants to properties and provides a full sign-up service for both parties. This service includes carrying out property inventories, preparing tenancy agreements and completing the full sign-up on behalf of the landlord at no cost. The client is offered a named Support Worker who assists in maintaining the tenancy and who also acts as landlord/tenant liaison where necessary.

A number of our clients are on low incomes and have no means to secure a deposit. We can offer landlords a written guarantee in the form of a Bond as an alternative to a deposit. For our vulnerable clients, we are also able to arrange the direct payment of rent through Sefton Council’s Revenue and Benefits Service.

Light for Life, in partnership with Sefton Council, regularly holds a Landlord’s Information Forum where landlords are invited along to an evening of speakers on a wide range of relevant topics and issues. This is also an opportunity to network with other landlords. Refreshments are provided and a number of Sefton Council representatives and experienced Light for Life staff are on hand to take questions and answer general queries.
