Our Properties

We focus on giving vulnerable people access to decent and affordable homes in the private rented sector.

As a ‘social landlord’, Moving On Durham acquires properties from landlords and owners on a short-term basis to provide to young people who are in housing need. We manage properties to a high standard, meaning that young people have a safe home and can make a fresh start.

Following a successful stay with us, young people are supported to ‘move on’ into appropriate long-term accommodation or supported to smoothly transition to a secured tenancy in their current home.

Property Management Service

Moving On Lettings is the Housing Management function of Moving On Durham.

Who we are…

As part of a charity focused on Breaking the Cycle of Youth Homelessness in County Durham for over 20 years, we can offer a truly unique service for Landlords with properties in disadvantaged neighbourhoods. We help homeless young people access properties in the private rented sector by:

Z

Offering supported accommodation for up to one year so our current tenant can learn how to live independently in the community and manage themselves and their property well

Z

Supported accommodation gives our Landlords piece of mind, with:

  • Guaranteed rent even during void periods
  • Free ‘Wear and Tear’ property maintenance ensuring conditions are as good as or better then at point of contract
  • A smooth and managed transition to a ‘normalised’ secured tenancy and letting arrangements once the tenant has proven their ability to manage the property where appropriate
