In association with ABCD It’s Here!……
Arun’s LetsHelpYou site is now live! Visit www.arun.letshelpyou.co.uk
What is it?> Letshelpyou is a property finding website. It was originally piloted in West Yorkshire and the Arun District have now joined.
Who should use it?> Anyone looking for privately rented property in the Arun District area.
The benefits of LHY include:
- A Local Housing Allowance and bedroom calculator for tenants who are claiming, or looking to claim Housing Benefit
- The easy to use website uses Google Translate so can be viewed in many languages
- Fast and FREE advertisement for landlords with properties in the private sector (Arun area only)
- A property tracker for tenants – they will get automatic e-mails with details of new properties matching their criteria
- A property tracker for landlords – details of how many times a propery has been viewed
- It’s easy to register – if customers don’t have internet access at home they can use computers at the Civic Centre and Bognor Town Hall
A piece of LHY was published on Thursday 11th in the local Gazetter and Observer. It will take time before the site is up and running to the capacity that we want it to be but please have a look at the site and let your customers know about it – tell landlords about it – tell tenants about it – tell anyone who will listen about it!!! You can also visit www.arun.gov.uk for more information.
The long-term aim is that the site is a place we can confidently direct tenants too if they contact us and are struggling to find privately rented accommodation. Housing’s weekly property bulletin will continue whilst the site is establishing itself but the LHY site will also be used by the Options Team.
Banners are up at the Civic Centre and Bognor Town Hall and leaflets are available. If you would like any leaflets please contact me so I can send you some.
Any queries on the site itself can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
