rent deposit guarantee scheme

For those who are eligible, the Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme provides people on low incomes and in housing need, access to private sector rented accommodation in Dumfries and Galloway.
The Rent Deposit Guarantee Scheme provides private landlords a written guarantee bond in place of a cash deposit for the duration of the tenancy (up to a maximum period of 12 months).

"Before being accepted onto the Deposit Guarantee Scheme, I had been staying in temporary homeless accommodation and was having difficulty finding anywhere as I didn't have enough money to pay the deposit. I've now got my own flat in Dumfries thanks to the Deposit Guarantee Scheme which would not have been possible for me otherwise." 
Billy from Annan.
