Housing Options



Welcome to the
Housing Options wizard.

This tool will ask a series of questions and then show you the different options you can explore to enhance your housing situation.

Why you should not just wait for a Social Housing tenancy....

....because Social Housing is in great demand and the number of people applying for it is far more than the number of properties available. Even those with a high priority for housing can wait a long time before being successful, if they ever get housed at all. Looking at other housing options may make it easier and quicker for you to move house. People with no local connection are not qualified to apply for social housing.

What housing options are available?

There are lots of different options available and using this wizard you will be able to see those which suit you and your circumstances. Some of the available options include:

  • Private Rented
  • Shared ownership
  • Mutual Exchange
  • Sheltered Housing
  • Extra Care
  • Short term supported accommodation
  • Help for you to stay where you are
  • Social Housing, including downsizing
