Our social lettings agency, CanDo Lettings is celebrating taking on its 350th property, making it another successful year for the leading social lettings agency in Wales.
CanDo Lettings was established in 2005 to help meet the increasing demand for housing in Cardiff. CanDo helps meet this demand by managing properties on behalf of private landlords and providing them to those in housing need.
The changes proposed by the UK Government under the Welfare Reform will lead to even greater demand for housing and the private rented sector will become increasingly important in providing homes to people in housing need. As Wales’ leading social lettings agency, CanDo are ideally placed to help meet this demand by continuing to work in partnership with the private rented sector.
Over the past year CanDo Lettings has doubled in size and following the massive success achieved in Cardiff, was commissioned by the local authority to set up in the Vale of Glamorgan a year ago.
The 350th property, a 3 bedroom flat in Barry, is the latest milestone for CanDo Lettings. The property is being let to Tamasay Flowers, who commented: ‘If it wasn’t for CanDo, myself and my children could have ended up on the streets. The CanDo team stepped in and provided me with a home when I really needed it. They dealt with everything very quickly and efficiently and I am extremely grateful.’
The owner of the property Carol Williams said: ‘CanDo Lettings were very helpful and dealt with all the legalities. I own another property which is also let by CanDo Lettings and I was keen to work with them again as they take all the hassle away and deal with all the arrangements. I’m really pleased with the service they have provided and would recommend them to any landlord.’
CanDo Lettings’ Director Helen Armstrong commented: ‘We are delighted to have taken on our 350th property. The private rented sector is a top priority for tackling homelessness and meeting housing need. As the leading social lettings agency in Wales, we are in an excellent position to meet this demand by continuing to work with private landlords to provide affordable homes for those who need them.’
