How our homes are allocated

Our homes are primarily allocated to people with Housing Need.  In addition to this, we also operate a number of Local Lettings Policies.  This allows us to make rehousing offers that fit with local community needs, for example we can offer in these areas priority to working households and people with community connections.

We have nominations agreements with all Local Authorities where we have stock and a number of our empty homes are set aside for nominations from Local Authorities such as Manchester City Council, Chorley Borough Council and Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council.  This ensures that reasonable preference is given to applicants in greatest need such as homelessness applicants, people fleeing Domestic Violence, overcrowding and applicants with medical needs. 

When an allocation is made, either through a nomination or a direct offer from us, we aim to develop stable communities and that preference is also given to applicants with a local connection to the area, either through work and family connections.
