Between them, Fife Private Rental Solutions’ Senior Housing Consultants Kathy and Ben, have 45 years of experience in housing, Kathy’s background started in homelessness and supported temporary accommodation, and Bens as a letting agent.

Having recently joined the team as Lettings Officer, I look forward to developing this role within the expanding FPRS service. I have worked in the private rental sector for over 15 years so bring extensive experience in property management. I will be responsible for providing guidance and information to new and existing landlords with any enquiries related to properties in the private rental sector, this may be in the form of keeping up to date with current legislation, finding suitable tenants and preparing for a new tenancy, to negotiations with rent debt resolution. I look forward to assisting landlords navigate the private rental sector and promoting the FPRS service throughout Fife. - Norah
Tenancy Management Officers
Alison Allison, Lana Johnston
My background for over 20 years was in social care, I have more recently been with Trust in Fife for over 3 years. The role as a Tenancy Management Officer is diverse, it incorporates liaising with tenants and Landlords, ensuring the smooth transition into a tenancy and set up of housing costs to enable sustainability. I have a good knowledge of the Welfare and Benefits system and employ this where appropriate to aid application of enhanced benefits for clients with additional needs, also when assisting to apply through alternative funding sources. By networking with other local Agencies, it affords our clients the all-round service required to sustain their tenancies. – Alison
I have worked for Trust in Fife for almost 20 years, starting my career as a Residential support worker to assist young homeless people. The combination of homelessness and private sector knowledge I have gained over the years enables me to view our client’s situation from various aspects and provide the most up to date information to assist with their enquiries. It is a pleasure assisting people in to homes within their preferred criteria, this enhances the likelihood of sustainability.
The role of Tenancy Management Officer has great variety, we have a wealth of knowledge in our team ranging from financial help & the benefit system to legislation, therefore FPRS are well equipped to provide information and advice regarding the private rented sector Fife wide. - Lana
I bring 30 years of experience in administration and customer service from different working environments within the public, private and voluntary sectors to the role of Scheduler/Administrator. Although I am responsible for dealing with initial enquiries from clients and agencies, and jointly manage the FPRS online presence, I mainly provide background administrative support to both clients and colleagues at key stages in the journey from initial referral to successful exit from our service. I carry out a variety of recording, monitoring and reporting tasks, utilising the robust systems and procedures we have here at FPRS, to ensure our service operates as accurately and efficiently as possible to meet each client’s individual needs. - Janie
