City of Peterborough, Housing & Homelessness, Katie Hawley

Rent Smart. Rental Housing. Find It. Maintain It. Tenants want a safe, suitable & affordable home to rent. Landlords want tenants to pay their rent on time & take care of their property. Rent Smart offers education & support services to tenants and landlords with one goal: successful tenancies. We have Community Educators trained in our community of Peterborough – staff from many local agencies – as part of a collaborative initiative to end homelessness. One tool is the Rent Smart Model which is designed to build common understanding between tenants & landlords, leading to a conflict-free tenancy.
