The properties that we let out get advertised within the Homefinder
(Somerset) or Devon home choice website which is run via the local
councils. In the rare instances where we might not be able to let a
property right away we sometimes advertise on the Gumtree website.

To check your rent balance or for help with any other general rent enquiries you can phone Yarlington First on 01935 404500.
To enable easier access to your account information, there will soon be an online tenant portal which will enable you to perform a number of actions relating to your account; print statements, check balance, edit details etc.
To report a repair there are a few options.
The rent free weeks are always on the last week of a month with 5 weeks in it.
Where the boundary or fences of the properties are concerned this is for the tenant to maintain and not Yarlington. Yarlington may be responsible for fences that are against a public path, road or field.
The fences each tenant is responsible for are usually on the left as you face the garden from the back door. For confirmation on boundary information please contact us via email or phone.
All of our shared ownership properties are advertised on our Yarlington Homes website: www.yarlingtonhomes.co.uk. This should give you the list of properties for sale and information on whether you are eligible, how to apply and further contact details.
You can contact Yarlington Homes for any other queries not answered by the website via email, firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01935 404006.
Tenants are responsible for all bulb replacements. In order to prevent any potential charges back to the tenant we ask that the bulb be tested first. When the bulb has been tested and if the light is still not working, please email or phone Yarlington First where a repair can be raised.
Should tenants not be able to source a replacement bulb, Newey and Eyre, a company based on the Lufton trading estate in Yeovil can supply you. Contact number is 01935 424683 and if you quote ref UV3883 you shall receive a Yarlington tenant discount.
If you have issues with rats, birds, mice or any other pests you need to contact your local council. The council have a pest control department who will be able to assess, identify and prevent further problems in the future.
