YorHome information for tenants

Tenants need a referral from our Housing Options Team to rent a property from YorHome property lettings agency.

YorHome are an ethical non-profit driven lettings agency, managing over 40 properties in the area. They offer support for landlords and tenants, including those on low incomes.

Bond Guarantee Scheme

Prospective tenants may be eligible for the bond guarantee scheme, which replaces a cash deposit.

The bond guarantee scheme is where a landlord agrees to a 'paper bond' rather than a deposit. Under this scheme, we can give landlords an assurance that they will be reimbursed a sum of money if you, as the tenant, damage their property. We will then claim any bond payment back from you.

Paying YorHome rent

If you are having difficulty paying your rent, contact YorHome as soon as possible. You risk losing your home if rent is not received by your landlord.
