Tenancy Support

Accommodation finding service requires SPINC undertaking a range of tenancy related tasks, which aim to build good working relationships with local letting agents, landlords and arranging a tenancy agreement so that you can get on the rented housing ladder for further independence in the future. Kemptown is a very safe and pleasant area to live and work and historically was referred to as the ‘Artists and Poets Quarter’, close to the sea front, Palace Pier and the iconic Pavillion.

We are close to all amenities and the main line train station is a mile and a half or a bus ride away from our Office.

Kemptown is a small community, a cosmopolitan, multicultural village with a friendly and accepting resident population and has a sizeable LGBTI community.

A lot of the properties in Kemptown are Regency style and have been converted to apartments, some with lifts to the upper floors. Properties at Brighton Marina village are modern purpose built properties and are afforded additional 24 hour security with tastefully positioned gated apartment blocks set amongst water inlet lagoons, vehicle security monitoring, free parking for 4 hours and 24 hour security foot patrols!

There are 24 hour supermarkets, places of worship (of many denominations), A&E at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton General  Hospital, GP surgeries, dentists, various types of health and wellbeing clinics and opticians, all available in the vicinity.

There  are lots of education facilities such as St. John’s college, City College, Brighton Recovery College and a multitude of leisure facilities including friendly pubs, cafes, hotels, restaurants, cinema, bowling clubs, theatres, live music venues, individual specialist shops, hairdressers, barbers, museums and art galleries!

All on our doorstep!

We can provide tenancy support if needed once your care has been agreed:

  • Find out what support you need with finding and paying for your new home
  • Explain to you or your representative what it means to have a tenancy and being a 'good neighbour' if this is something new
  • Source and find the right property with you and help you get onto the council housing list
  • Speak to the letting agent or landlord
  • Secure the property with a deposit and pay the admin fee if you don't have savings or someone else to help with this. We would need to recover this cost by re-payment
  • Go through the tenancy agreement or license with you and/or your representative to make sure you understand your rights and responsibilities. The first tenancy agreement is usually for six months
  • Support you to make an application for Housing Benefit and speak to the Housing Benefits office as your appointee
  • Help you to find furniture if your property is unfurnished and to personalise your new home
  • Make sure the rent and bills are paid on time by setting up a direct debit from your account
  • Help you understand your benefits entitlements, income, outgoings and what money you have left to spend
  • Support you to report any maintenance work to your landlord or help you to find someone to do odd jobs around the place
  • Support and help with moving in and checking out of your property. This may involve you paying for furniture removers and cleaning and necessary repairs to the property back to landlord standard to enable you to have your deposit returned and good landlord references for the future
