A Landlords view “When I first heard of Wigan Housing Solutions and the opportunity to lease a property to the council for a term of 3 years, my initial reaction was where’s the catch and what will it cost! After having dealt with the team for a number of months and with the first property on board I can safely say it was a decision well made. The system works fantastically well for those Landlords looking for a secure income managed by a professional team offering peace of mind in a turbulent market.” Dan Anders
