CITY OF WOLVERHAMPTON RENT WITH CONFIDENCE WEBSITE LAUNCHED
City of Wolverhampton Council’s new five-star rating system to improve the quality of housing in the city is now live – and if you’re a tenant looking to rent a private sector property you should head to www.rentwithconfidence.org.uk as your first port of call.
‘Rent with Confidence’ is aiming to encourage greater customer choice and raise living standards.
It functions in a similar way to the rating scheme used by the Food Standards Agency for restaurants and takeaways.
Stars are awarded to landlords who comply with the law and who rent out property above the minimum statutory standards, with financial incentives for five-star landlords.
Overall, the scheme will see improved health and well-being of residents, along with better property and housing management standards, and longer term stability in neighbourhoods. The scheme will improve the private rented offer and support the economic regeneration of the city.
