Care company needs homes in Helston
12:30pm Sunday 16th February 2014 in News
An organisation which specialises in providing residential care for people with autism, is appealing to landlords in the Helston area who have family homes to rent.
Redruth-based Green Light PBS Ltd gives support to people with intellectual disabilities and autism at family size homes in Cornwall. Due to the demand the company is now looking for new homes to rent or buy.
The homes would be rented for a minimum of five years to give tenants long-term stability and the landlord security of tenure. They are registered, regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.
“People are often concerned that renting to people with special needs, such as those with autism, will mean that their properties may be damaged,” said Sarah Miller, Green Light’s compliance manager.
“This is a common misconception. Our staff are fully trained and well equipped to deal with the challenges that caring for people with autism may present. They ensure that our customers enjoy a stable, fulfilling lifestyle in homes that are managed to a very high standard.”
The company currently leases property in Holywell Bay, Newquay, Goonhavern, Portreath and Helston and is happy to supply references from current landlords.
Mrs Miller added: “We consider ourselves to be a good tenant as we not only look after the properties but we are reliable with payment and transparent with our services.”
Any changes to the property, such as fitting fire doors, alarm systems, or other work, would be paid for by the company and carried out with the landlord’s consent. The property would be returned to its original spec at the end of the lease.
As well as leasing property Green Light is also interested in purchasing homes that suit its needs, whether they be small units to larger homes or complexes
Mrs Miller said: “We would welcome the opportunity to discuss the options with any landlord or homeowner who may already be renting their property, or who has never considered renting before, but is looking for long term secured tenants. Our rates are extremely competitive and with demand for our services increasing it is a sound investment.”
