Landlord Referencing is very happy to announce that we now have our second Credit Union partner on board; view their web page here @ iscu.onesuffolk.net.
Ipswich & Suffolk Credit Union was founded in Ipswich in 2001 and now has thousands of members right across Suffolk who save when they can, and borrow when they need to. It is a financial co-operative which is owned and managed by its members, with 70 volunteers and six paid staff, providing a safe place to save as well as low cost loans.
Anyone who lives and/or works within Suffolk can join. Simply pay a one-off joining fee of £4 and an initial £1 savings deposit (£5.00 in total). Anyone over 18 can join as a full member, and they also have junior accounts for under-18s; which can be opened at no charge.
We believe that all landlords & tenants should join their local Credit Union because they will be able to offer the best solutions to rent arrears and evictions, by assisting tenants in managing their money and finances; especially with the impending welfare reform changes via Universal Credit.
We also hope that this will pave the way for other Credit Unions right across the UK to partner with us, via our latest pledge:
