JMHA continues to work with various local authorities and housing associations to provide temporary accommodations for families and individuals who, through no fault of their own, have been made homeless.
Following the recommendations in recent Government reviews of the private rented sector in both England and Scotland, JMHA have set up & work with local letting agencies in various towns and cities across the UK. This has been developed using our extensive experience of both the social and private housing markets gained over the last 20 years.
Our service operates as a traditional lettings agency that facilitates access to the private rented sector to clients who otherwise may be excluded from obtaining a private tenancy. The lack of a tenancy deposit, reference or being on DWP benefits restricts access to many people who would otherwise be able to sustain a private tenancy. Failure to access a tenancy often results in a homeless presentation to the local authority. This model works by offering landlords guaranteed rents & an option to have rents paid in 6 monthly instalments which helps bring them together with suitable tenants backed up by the benefits of a professional tenancy and property management service.
Many councils provide free advice and assistance to people who have housing enquiries—especially anyone affected by homelessness and those who are worried they might lose their home.
Their aim is to advise you on your options so that, ideally, you can find the most appropriate housing option to address your need and to prevent homelessness. Councils do this by offering you advice on a range of subjects linked to your circumstances.
Please don't leave it until it's too late! It is important that you contact the local council as soon as possible if you have a problem and are worried you may lose your home. The earlier you contact the council, the better chance they have of helping you.

High quality homes, good service, very reliable and good value for money. We have used JMHA in our pilot scheme to house homeless families. Their service is highly commendable!
A breath of fresh air, a housing association that thinks outside the box! We are currently working with JMHA in implementing our regeneration schemes with landlords whose properties has been left empty.
I have been approached by another Housing Association who has offered me to refurbish and lease my fire damaged property, then JMHA came along and has provided me with a more competitive refurbishing package and more comprehensive leasing scheme. They are definitely more value for your money.
