Deposit guarantee scheme

Our deposit guarantee scheme helps people who may become homeless to get a private rented home. It helps by providing a deposit guarantee to the landlord in place of a cash deposit.

The scheme

  • Gives a guarantee to landlords that we will pay for damages/arrears at the end of the tenancy
  • Pays the claim on the deposit bond to the landlord at the end of the tenancy and then passes the charge on to you
  • Lasts for three years, or the lifetime of the tenancy if it is shorter

You can get help if you have

  • A local connection with South Northamptonshire and
  • A need to move out of your current home and
  • No money for a rent deposit funds to pay the deposit
