Scotland, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/10/2014 -- People rushing to work and on daily errands aren’t usually aware of the number of homeless people there are in Scotland today.The reality is that last year almost 40,000 people were declared homeless. Lettingweb provides a connection between those looking for a place to stay, landlords and letting agents. They are also very concerned about the huge numbers of homeless and have established the Lettingweb Foundation in an effort to reduce that total. Details on what the Foundation is doing can be viewed on www.lettingweb.com.
The Lettingweb Foundation is a charitable organization whose purpose is to donate and redistribute a share of Lettingweb’s profits to Scotland’s most deserving causes. One of those is the Bethany Christian Trust, a homeless charity group. Based in Edinburgh, the Bethany Christian Trust helps homeless and vulnerable people find, equip and maintain a home within the local community. Their work with the Bethany Christian Trust enables Lettingweb to give a homeless person a hot drink, a warm meal and a blanket for the night. The Lettingweb Foundation has already helped over 1000 people. Considered by itself, 1000 is a large contribution. Compare that to the 40,000 total Scottish homeless for an idea of how much remains to be done.
Those who have a reason to work with Lettingweb can support the company’s effort to reduce the homeless population of Scotland by signing up with the company now. Everyone who does makes it possible for the Foundation to share a little more with the homeless community.
Lettingweb was set up in 1999 by letting agents for letting agents to help grow their business. Agents choosing to sign up can improve profitability, public perception of their company and increase fee income by having a presence with Lettingweb and their key distribution partner Zoopla Property Group on three of the five biggest property portals in the UK and the largest marketplace for lettings in Scotland. Agents can free up more time to work on their business by putting necessary information in one place. Performance analytics, comparable rental data and the latest industry news will all be available on an agent’s dashboard.
Landlords with properties to rent can benefit by signing up with Lettingweb to distribute information to agents in appropriate communities. The firm has over 500 member agents. Landlords can fill out the website contact form or consult the site’s Agent Directory and select one to work with themselves.
Tenants looking for a new home can post their city, area or postcode to www.lettingweb.com for information on what is available. The site has almost 7,000 properties listed. Tenants can specify the price and size of the accommodations for which they are searching.
Working with Lettingweb to solve housing problems is a winner in two ways, for those interested in the properties and for the homeless who will appreciate a helping hand.
