Social rent

We do not operate a direct waiting list - you'll need to register with the local authority for the area you wish to move to. The local authority will then consider your application, and provide you with a priority banding depending on your personal circumstances. You can then bid on the properties you are eligible for. 

However, in some areas, where local agreements allow, we will be advertising a number of properties directly on our website. Have a browse through a selection of our featured properties and fill in our online form if you’re interested in renting one of these properties.

London residents can also participate in the Mayor of London's housing mobility scheme Housing Moves which allows tenants of London boroughs or housing associations to move outside their existing borough to a different part of London.

Discounted market rent

Intermediate market rent  is designed to help potential first-time buyers who cannot yet afford to buy a home, but want the chance to save for a deposit to purchase a home within the next five years.

It gives you the opportunity to rent a brand new or refurbished home, or a home that is being re-let at less than the market rate. The rent charged is normally approximately 20% lower than what you would expect to pay for a similar home in a similar area if you were renting from a private landlord. Find out more about intermediate rent on our Hyde New Homes website.
