    London community group offering 2-5 year guaranteed lease - how do we tell landlords?

    Hello - we're new on LZ, so I hope it's OK posting this. We are a community group looking for a residential property to rent in North London/Camden at just above LHA rates. We can offer guaranteed rent/lease for 2-5 years (backed by a housing association.) But how do we find an interested landlord? People keep telling us it'll be easy, but it isn't! Any ideas? We have zero budget for ads. Happy to explain further if people want to know more. Thanks.

    The regular advice given to landlords on this forum is not to touch such arrangements with a barge pole.

      If you have no budget for advertising, you have no viable product and LLZ is not the right platform/

        Community Group? Do you mean a CLT (Land Trust) or a charity. Explain your status please?



        Freedom at the point of zero............

          What is your budget for paying landlords for damage?
          I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

              Nah, it'll be a way of housing people you wouldn't dream of renting to, at the public expense.
              To save them chiming in, JPKeates, Theartfullodger, Boletus, Mindthegap, Macromia, Holy Cow & Ted.E.Bear think the opposite of me on almost every subject.

                  Actually, they haven't said what they propose to do with the property and I would be interested to know. Care to tell us MicheleM?
