Local Authority Housing Services
Cameo Properties Services offers unique partnering opportunities to procure and manage properties from the Private Sector for use as accommodation for Local Authorities.
 
Working closely with Cameo Properties have assisted in mapping out a process to ensure those seeking housing benefit assistance are able to move smoothly through the system and with the use of centralised systems and funded through a Housing Benefit subsidy, we look to underwrite the cost of dilapidations and rent arrears, enabling the Local Authority to budget for a known cost.
 
Properties are procured from private landlords on long leases, for which the landlords are paid a guaranteed rent. 
We operate in the Beds and Northants region within the UK but, subject to minimum contract sizes, are able to work anywhere within the UK:
Cameo Properties can then further assist local authorities in the following ways:
  • Providing information on the private sector potential for temporary accommodation
  • Working with local authorities to assist with the implementation of the forthcoming housing benefit changes
  • Helping local authorities with their temporary accommodation and homelessness strategies
  • Designing bespoke solutions that meet local authority priorities
