Even better . . .

Welcome to our home

You might have seen our post last week about how tenants can get white goods or electrical items at discounted prices and / or with affordable credit terms via ‘Homekind’ at which has links to our local credit union 6Towns Credit Union.

Well, Malcolm Keyte of 6Towns has been in contact with me to let me know that Homekind actually do more than I told you about. They have all sorts of household items – not just electrical goods and also do ‘tenant packages’ which might be suitable for someone moving into a new home. So whatever your tenant needs for their home, Homekind might be a good place to look at first. You’ll understand my need to put in a disclaimer here – this blog can’t recommend or endorse products or services – but having said that – do please have a look.

Something worth emphasising is that although Homekind has been set up by a group of social housing providers – you are welcome to use Homekind, whether your home is in the private or social sector. It could be just what your tenant needs.

If you have ever been to our landlord forums – you might have already seen Malcolm, or ‘Malc’ as we know him, talking about 6Towns and how they can help people on Universal Credit manage their money. Especially rent money. This is a message that Malc is still very keen to get across. So if you are a private landlord with tenants likely to go onto Universal Credit, (same disclaimer as above) you might also want to have a look at the 6Towns website
