I am homeless, or worried about losing my home. What should I do?
Why choose Home Group?
Can I rent a home directly from you?
In some areas we rent directly to customers. In other locations we provide housing through local authorities or choice-based lettings schemes.
Who gets offered a home?
The rules which set out who is offered a home is called an allocation policy. In some areas it is set by us, and in other areas by the local authority, choice-based lettings service or common housing register. As an example, you can read our allocation policy.
An allocation policy tells you:
- Who can apply
- How to apply
- Who is prioritised for homes
- What size property you could get
Your housing need is prioritised based on a banding system.
The area I want to live in is not in the list. What does this mean?
If you can't spot the location you are interested in it means we don't have any, or many, homes available in that area.
Your local council will be able to tell you other ways to apply for housing. Visit GOV.UK to find your local council.
