Townhall Lettings was formed in January 2014 in response to the needs of local landlords, as well as the needs of people seeking accommodation. Townhall Lettings is a nonprofit organisation aiming at eradicating homelessness in Cambridge.

Making a Difference

We talked to landlords about what we could do to help us work closer with them. They told us that they wanted assurances that rent would be paid on time, that tenants would be suitable and that their properties would be treated with respect.

When we talked to tenants, they told us that affordable accommodation was incredibly difficult to find and that the quality of available accommodation was sometimes poor.

Making a Difference

We formed our social lettings service with the aim of providing good quality, local, affordable accommodation to people who needed it - and providing a deal to landlords that would make good financial sense.

Over the past five years, we've grown and expanded the service. We've been privileged to work with some great local landlords and we've been glad to see people's lives improved as a result of being housed in safe, affordable accommodation.
