Apply for a House

If you are being considered for a property, we will contact you to complete an allocation interview.  This involves talking to you about your current circumstances, discussing the tenancy agreement and will give you the opportunity to ask any questions.   Once this part of the process is complete, we will obtain a tenancy reference if necessary.  When the offer is approved, and the property is ready for viewing we will make an appointment to meet you at the property to sign the paperwork. 

At the viewing you will be given your tenancy agreement and other paperwork to sign along with the keys.  You will become the tenant from this date and will be responsible for paying the rent, council tax and utilities.

If you have any questions or you would like further information in relation to our letting process, then please call our Contact Centre on 01698 268855.  You can also view our Allocations Policy below.
