Renting on the open market

Market rent

Islington and Shoreditch rent a small number of properties at market rent. This means that we own homes which we rent out at the same levels as a private landlord would. Market rents are not subsidised and you do not need to be registered with your local authority to rent these properties. Anybody who is in full time employment and can afford the rent may apply for one of our market rented homes.

We use the income we get from market rent to support other projects – and tenants who rent in this way benefit from our experience as a long established social housing landlord.

Customers renting in this way are given 12 month Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements. After this point, renewals can be completed at 12 month intervals subject to the landlord and tenant agreeing to this. Our market rent properties are advertised by local estate agents. All our available properties will be advertised through Chestertons estate agents based in Upper Street in Islington.
