Intermediate Rent

Newlon is one of the main providers of Intermediate Rent homes in north and east London. Intermediate Rent is a scheme where homes are let at up to 70% of market rents in the local area. We have properties of this type in boroughs including Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

Anyone who meets our eligibility criteria can apply. However, we will give priority to existing Newlon Intermediate Rent tenants who are overcrowded, followed by key workers.

Key workers are currently defined as staff employed by the NHS, police, prisons, probation service, fire brigade, armed forces, national security services, social care sector, schools, childcare providers and local authorities. They also include people who work in food production and processing, transport, as well as charities delivering frontline services. You can get in touch if find out if you are classed as a key worker.

To find out about the Intermediate Rent homes we have available please visit our lettings website at newlonlettings.org.uk.
