Affordable housing for rent
Affordable housing for rent includes social rented housing and affordable rented housing, and is available for rent to people in housing need at rents lower than an open market rent.
In Rushcliffe, all affordable housing for rent is owned and managed by not-for-profit organisations called Registered Providers, traditionally known as Housing Associations. The Council does not own any housing stock. This was all transferred to Rushcliffe Homes in 2003, and is now owned and managed by Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing (MTVH). There are also a number of other Registered Providers with a presence in the Borough, who work with us to meet the housing needs of local people.
If you want to rent a property in Rushcliffe from a Registered Provider, you will need to register and apply through the Homesearch Choice Based Lettings scheme.
Registered Providers also offer accommodation specifically for older people, some intermediate housing (such as shared ownership) and some specialist housing, such as supported properties for people with certain disabilities.
