Website will make it easier for both tenants and landlords

NEW website could help out landlords and tenants in the Bognor Regis area.

The self-service website is now available free in the Arun district.

The site is part of a local government project to improve access to existing residents and those looking for privately-
rented accommodation.

Arun District Council has joined other local authorities to sign up for the ‘Letshelpyou’ service – the only website which calculates your local housing allowance against properties.

Once you find a property, you can contact the landlord using the details provided.

Roger Elkins, Arun’s cabinet member for housing, said: “Arun through its new priorities is committed to finding ways of helping people find homes and make the process easier particularly for those who are in need of our assistance.”

Tenants can sign up to the site’s property tracker and receive email alerts about new property listings. Landlords can use the tool to see how many people have viewed their properties.

A bedroom calculator also shows the size of property a person claiming housing benefit would qualify for.
