CanDo Lettings: an award-winning social enterprise

CanDo Lettings CanDo Lettings was created in 2007 by Cadwyn Housing Association. We like to think that we’re different to other letting agencies. We were set up as a social enterprise for a very specific purpose – to help tackle homelessness and improve the quality of housing for people on low incomes in Cardiff. We do this by providing affordable access to the private rented sector, along with sustainable, managed tenancies.

We’ve grown rapidly since then. Doubling our team, expanding into the Vale of Glamorgan and surrounding areas and offering a new professional lets service to those who are unable to purchase their own home.

As a not-for-profit organisation our focus is on providing the best service possible to our landlords and tenants. With over 400 managed properties, we have to make sure that this is something we are exceptional at. That’s why all our staff are fully-qualified and as an accredited ARLA member, we also voluntarily choose to abide by a code of conduct – above what is legally required to operate as a lettings agency. It’s just another way of us making sure that we’re doing the best for our customers.

Our success was recently rewarded at the Cardiff Life Awards where we took home the top prize in the Best Estate Agent / Property category after impressing the judges for “Really standing out at what they do and how they do it”. We also made the shortlist for “Specialist Landlord of the Year” at this year’s UK Housing Awards which were held in London. This was the second time that we made the final cut at the prestigious awards after winning the award for “Innovation and Efficiency” in 2010.

These accolades are testament to the hard work and dedication of the team and we’re extremely proud that the people of South Wales and our peers in the housing sector have recognised our success.

So if you want a reliable, award-winning and accredited letting agency to take care of your property needs, contact us today and find out what we CanDo for you.
