  • Social Rented Housing

    If you cant afford to rent a property privately, you may be able to live in one of our social rented homes.  As with most housing associations our allocations are managed by the Local Authority (LA), so we do not handle applications directly. 

    Quick Guide to renting a home from us:

    1.    Put your name down on your LA housing register.
    2.    Use the LA’s choice-based lettings scheme to look for a suitable home.
    3.    Bid for the home of your choice.
    4.    If you are shortlisted for the property, we will work through a pre-tenancy assessment with you to make sure the home is right for you.
    5.    If you are successful we will offer you the property.
    6.    Before moving in we will need your first rent payment in advance

    How do I apply for a rented property?

    Contact your LA and register using their housing application form. They 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 the allocation system 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.

  • Existing Tenants

    If you are an existing tenant interested in moving, you need to register here https://www.thameshomechoice.co.uk/Choice/ so we can determine your housing need and check if you are eligible for a transfer.  Available homes to rent are advertised on this website. You can see what properties are available and ‘bid’ to tell us which ones you like.  Once the bidding cycle for a property has finished, all bidders will then be shortlisted in order of band priority and date that priority was received.
