Real Lettings South leads the way in Southampton and Portsmouth

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Following the success of Real Lettings in London and the great reputation we have earned in the homelessness sector, Southampton based charity Two Saints approached Broadway last year with a view to setting up a similar operation covering the Hampshire area.  After combining Two Saints' motivation and passion with our knowledge and experience of housing homeless people in the private rented sector, Real Lettings South was born.

Real Letting South launched in Portsmouth and Southampton towards the end of last year, and already the team has started to grow in size.  Operations will be spreading into West Berkshire in March.  The Real Lettings South team now includes Manager Dominic Thompson, Lucy Haworth who is the contact for Portsmouth and Richard Mitchell who takes the lead on Southampton area enquiries.  They are soon to be joined by Pippa Tout who will be working in West Berkshire.  

The team is dealing with a high level of enquiries and a good deal of interest from developers, agents, landlord and occupier/owners; all of whom are drawn to the security of a guaranteed rent 12 months of the year and the opportunity to help give someone a step up in life.  Leases have been signed for flats across the whole Real Lettings South area of operations including Fareham, the New Forest, Southsea, Southampton, Gosport and Hayling Island.

In the same way that Real Lettings operates, the properties procured have been let to people who have been homeless in recent times; including two people who were living in bed and breakfast accommodation and some who have been able to move out of supported housing with the help of Real Lettings South.

We're looking forward to hearing more news from the team over the course of this year and we wish them every success.
