Community Lettings

Our waiting list is currently CLOSED - watch this space for updates.

We developed our Community Lettings Scheme to sustain and strengthen the local community by helping to provide homes for people with a local connection, such as family members or key workers who play an important role in the local area and would benefit by being able to live close to their work.

You may be eligible to apply if:

  • You can demonstrate a connection of at least three years to a local area where we have homes
  • You are in housing need

Local Connection

We will ask to see copies of official documents (such as bills or bank statements) - both from a date close to the time of application and also from at least 3 years ago showing the address you have lived at. If you are a key worker we will ask for proof of your employment, the location and duration of your work. Local areas where we have homes are:

  • Soho
  • Covent Garden
  • Fitzrovia
  • Bloomsbury
  • Victoria
  • Queen's Park
  • Maida Vale
  • Farringdon

Housing Need

You need to apply to the local council for housing (either Westminster or Camden) and provide us with a copy of their response to you. If they accept you onto their list then we will not consider your application as the council will have a duty to offer you accommodation. If you are accepted without priority we may consider you for our list. We will not accept any applicant who:

  • has an assured or secure tenancy at another housing association or local council
  • owns, part-owns or has any financial interest in any property (leasehold or freehold)

If you believe you are eligible, please complete our housing application - or contact our housing team to receive a form in the post and for more information.

If you have medical needs you will also need to complete our medical form
