Finding a home to rent

Our goal is to provide high-quality homes and services that help to create sustainable communities.


Finding a home to rent

We have a wide variety of homes in over 45 local authority areas in the East Midlands. The majority of these have two or three bedrooms, but we also have one-bedroom flats for single people and couples and some four and five bedroom houses for large or extended families. Some homes are specially adapted to meet the needs of older people or residents with a disability.

We do not keep our own waiting lists. To apply for one of our homes, you need to register with the local authority (council) for the area that you wish to live in. After registering you will be given a priority status or level of housing need.

Most local authorities now operate a 'choice-based lettings' system for allocating both council and housing association homes in their area.

Choice-based lettings

Choice-based lettings provide those applying for social housing with an element of choice.

Local authorities and housing associations advertise their available properties – the advertising outlets/formats vary between areas but can include local newspapers, leaflets, newsletters, and on the internet. Registered applicants can then bid for properties if they are interested.

Bidding does not involve money, it just means that you are telling the local authority that you are interested in a particular property and want to be considered for it.
