Landlords and letting agents

You're in safe hands with Notting Hill Housing. We have more than 20 years' experience and expertise in letting properties across London for private and portfolio landlords, letting agents and developers, and we can guarantee you a monthly income without the fuss of having to find and manage tenants.

We've been working to house Londoners for more than 50 years, building close relationships with local authorities who trust us to provide good homes for their residents. As a result, the 2,000+ properties we manage on behalf of private landlords are always in high demand.

Free commission for guaranteed rent

Working with us is cost-effective, simple and secure. We don’t charge commission and there are no hidden costs – so no charges for setting up property schedules, inventories or tenancy agreements. Instead, we offer you a cost-effective letting and property management service, with leases of up to five years.

Throughout your lease with us, we’ll cover any rent arrears or costs relating to other breaches of tenancy and we’ll deal with any liability arrangements on utility bills and council tax to ensure that you’re never out of pocket. We’ll even pay your rent when a tenant moves out.

We'd like to team up with landlords from all over London, so please get in touch.

Convenient property leasing

When your property is occupied, we’ll complete your internal routine repairs and offer an emergency service for out-of-hours repairs. And at the end of your lease, we’ll return your property to you with vacant possession and works completed less fair wear and tear.

So, if you want the reassurance of your property being let and managed by a well-established and respected housing association, with expert knowledge and links across London, get in touch with us today.

The letting process

Below is an introduction to our lettings process for landlords.

  • Initial contact

    The first step to becoming a landlord with us is to contact Landlord Services at or call on

    020 3815 0840 to discuss your needs, how our scheme works and whether it is suitable for you.

  • Free property inspection

    One of our negotiators will meet you at your property for a free inspection and rental valuation. During the inspection we will take you through our property requirements. There will also be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.


  • Offer letter

    Following the property inspection, a formal offer will be made and a schedule of works provided, if required.

  • Lease and application

    If you decide to go ahead you'll need to complete an application form and sign the lease agreement. Please get in touch with our Landlord Services team at or on 020 381 50840.

  • Documents required

    Landlords are required to provide the following documents before we can allow tenants to move in:

    Gas safety
    The Gas Safety (Insulation and Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all gas appliances must be inspected annually by a Gas Safe Register registered engineer.

    A valid Gas Safety record must be issued and updated every 12 months. The current certificate must have been issued within the last six weeks and must be an original (not a copy).

    Electrical safety
    The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 require that electrical equipment including wiring, is safe. An electrical test certificate must be issued by the electricity board or a NICEIC registered electrician. This certificate must have been issued in the last six weeks, be an original (not a copy), and must be valid for a minimum period of three years.

    Energy performance
    It has been a legal requirement since 1 October 2008 for all the landlords to have a valid energy performance certificate (EPC) for their property before it can be let. The EPC gives your house an A-G rating on energy efficiency and suggests ways to improve your rating. Your property will need to have an "E" rating or above.

    A valid EPC will last for 10 years and can be used for multiple tenancies within that period.

  • Final inspection

    Once you've completed any work needed to bring your property up to our rental standards, our negotiator will visit the property for a final inspection. They will sign off the works and draw up a 'schedule of condition' that records the condition of your property at the start of the lease. At this stage, we will collect three full working sets of keys from you.

  • Leasing your property

    Once your property has passed its final inspection and we have all of the documentation, we'll sign up a tenant.

    Your lease will usually start on the date of the first tenancy. From this date we guarantee that your rent will be paid directly to you every month until the end of the agreement.

  • Management service

    We have dedicated housing officers who carry out regular visits throughout the lease term to manage the tenancy and the condition of the property including repairs.

    Our residents also have access to an emergency out-of-hours repairs hotline to report emergency repairs outside office hours.
