Intermediate Rent

The Intermediate Rent (IMR) scheme offers you the opportunity to rent a brand new property or a home that is being re-let at approximately 80% of the market rate. As well as being more affordable, you have the assurance that your home is built, managed and let by a registered housing provider.

IMR also gives you a chance to use the savings made on the subsidised rent to build towards a sizeable deposit, enabling you to purchase a home within the next five years.

Intermediate rented homes are generally let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy basis with a 6 month contract period. You may be able to rent a home for longer than this initial contract period, but would need to discuss this with the relevant housing provider.

To access any IMR schemes in Wandsworth, you need to be living or working in the borough. Please fill in the Home Ownership application (PDF, 75KB) and return it to the address on the form.
