Help tenants do more with less. Moving into a new property is an exciting time. It can also be financially challenging with advance rent to pay, potentially changing benefits and for anyone moving into an unfurnished property, there will also be the added expense of purchasing furniture and appliances.

It can be a daunting prospect for anyone, especially if money is tight, yet understandably a tenant will want to furnish their new place quickly and with the best possible fittings which can lead to bad choices and rent not being paid.
