Suffolk Coastal DC is launching a rent guarantee scheme to help single people and families who cannot make a deposit on rented accommodation, the East Anglian Daily Times reports (p22).

The council, which will be running the scheme in conjunction with Suffolk Heritage Housing Association, will spend £5,000 on the scheme this year, and £11,600 in a full financial year.

The paper reports that similar schemes run by other councils showed that landlords claimed damage expenses against the deposit in only 7% of cases, each worth only £30 to £40.
