Enfield Let is a new ethical letting agency, the first of its kind in the borough. The move towards ethical letting is part of Enfield Council’s wider strategy to tackle homelessness and reform the private rented sector in the borough.
Enfield Let was created to help tackle social injustice in the private rental sector, assisting those who would otherwise struggle to access private housing and ensuring residents are not discriminated against because of their financial status.
By providing an effective and affordable early intervention option Enfield Let aims to divert residents from presenting as homeless. This in turn will provide significant savings to the temporary accommodation budget by avoiding expensive nightly paid accommodation costs.
Enfield Let aims to ensure quality and standards in the marketplace, building on the existing market offer with a secure and supported nature.Enfield Let is an ethical lettings agency ensuring the usual barriers to letting are removed.
