Affordable Rent


What is Affordable Rent?

This option offers new build homes to rent at 80% (or less) of typical market rents.

How does it work?

Homes are available through a range of housing associations on an assured shorthold tenancy, usually for an initial period of six months. This is reviewed regularly.

What are my options after renting through Affordable Rent?

Some housing associations that let properties through this scheme also offer an option to buy a share in the property on a Shared Ownership basis at a later date. Some housing associations may ask you to agree to purchase the property after a pre-defined rental period. This is called Rent to Buy.

What homes are available?

We ask all housing associations and developers to list their properties on our website. You can search for a home in the area you wish to live here.
