Where do I start?
If you can’t afford to rent a property privately you may be able to live in one of our rented homes. Contact your local council and register online with Homelink. Your local council will assess your needs, looking at things like whether you’re overcrowded where you live now, and taking any medical or social requirements you have into account.
How does it work?
Most local authorities now use a choice-based lettings scheme, which means that available properties are advertised through their website. You can search for, and bid on, any property you want, giving you much more choice. Five steps to renting a home from us:
- Register with Homelink
- Use the Homelink website to look for a suitable home
- Bid for the suitable homes you prefer.
- If you are shortlisted for the property, we will visit you for a pre-tenancy assessment with you to make sure the home is right for you.
- If you are successful we will offer you the property. Before moving in we will need at least your first week’s rent payment in advance.
