Help renting out a property

The housing crisis is hitting local people hard. House prices are at a record high and demand for social housing is far outstripping supply. Local people depend heavily on the private rented sector but with rents rising more sharply in the South West than most other parts of the UK it is becoming increasing difficult for families to find affordable homes.  

Average rents are currently well above the Local Housing Allowance, which is the amount set by central government for support with rent costs for those on a lower income.  Hard-working families are being priced out of the market.
