You can apply for many of our homes on different websites and through local authorities.

In some areas this is via a waiting list that you need to register for. The other option is through a local choice based lettings partnership which lets you apply for the homes you’re interested in rather than going on a waiting list. Where possible, we advertise our homes through these lettings partnerships where you can see properties from lots of landlords all in one place.

In some areas, a number of properties are also given to people referred by the local authority. This is called a local authority nomination.

How do I apply for a home?

Search for the area that you want to live in below and follow the instructions for the relevant scheme in that area. The process does involve filling in some forms online so please be ready for that.

 

We offer some of our homes through North Yorkshire’s HomeChoice. This is a way of allocating council and partner housing association properties for rent and shared ownership properties for sale. The site is aimed to give customers more choice in deciding where you want to live and  to choose a home which best suits your needs. Properties that are available for rent are advertised weekly.  If you are eligible and qualify to join the register you can express an interest (bid) on properties you would like to be considered for. On the site you can, search for available properties, apply for a property and view results of previous lettings. Before you bid on a property you’ll need to complete an online application form. Once you have completed your application form, we will need to verify your details and activate your application. Once you are accepted on to the housing register we will write to tell you:
  • Your housing application  unique reference number and memorable date.
  • The priority band your application has been placed in.
  • The number of bedrooms and type of property you are entitled to bid on
You must tell them if there are any changes in your circumstances so that we can reassess your application and, if necessary, make changes to your band and bedroom entitlement.
