Finding a home for rent

Hastoe is committed to working closely with local authorities to help them to meet their responsibilities to house those in greatest housing need.  This is also fundamental to our own Lettings Policy which can be viewed here.  We think that the best way we can ensure that our homes go to those in the greatest need is by taking our tenants from the local authority waiting lists.  We have therefore taken the decision to close all the waiting lists for our properties and no new applications are being accepted.
 
If you want to live in a rented Hastoe home you should register for housing with the local authority where the property is located.

The contact details of your local authority can be found here.

Choice Based Lettings (CBL)

Most of the areas where we have homes have a choice based lettings system in place.  Choice based lettings schemes give applicants more of a say in where they are housed.  Once you register on a list, you are put into a band according to your level of need.  Priority within each band is determined by the length of time in the band on the list.  Vacant properties are advertised through newspapers, websites, information sheets or telephone hotlines and you then "bid" for properties you are interested in.  If you meet the lettings criteria for the scheme (for example, for some properties you need to have a local connection to qualify) and you are at the top of the list, you will normally be shortlisted for the vacancy.
 
Not all local authorities have CBL schemes and they all operate in slightly different ways.  Your local authority (see link above) can give you further details of the schemes which operate in the area where you want to live.
