Let’s Rent letting services

Service update: We are continuing to deliver these services, except undertaking tenant Inspections, which cannot be conducted in person. We are contacting tenants to offer our support and give feedback to our landlords, were required. 

If you are interested in renting your home through one of our schemes, please visit email us at letsrent@woking.gov.uk or phone 01483 743 836.

We offer private landlords long-term tenancies via a range of professional letting services with no fees or commission. There are no hidden charges and your net income will be comparable with many letting agents’ offers.

This initiative is called ‘Let’s Rent’ - offering core values which connect landlords and tenants for a complete service.

Properties we are looking to manage

Our greatest need is for two bedroom properties. However, any size property from a one bedroom flat to a large family house in any area in Woking will be considered.

Properties must be unfurnished and in good condition. Priority is given to providing homes for Woking residents within the borough. Sometimes residents want to move away so we will consider properties outside of Woking using our Let’s Rent Core and Connect services.
