Housing Options



Welcome to the Housing Options Assessment Tool

This tool will ask a series of questions and then guide you through the different options you can explore to enhance your housing situation.


Why not just wait for a Social Housing Tenancy?

Social Housing is in great demand and often people can wait a long time before being placed in a council owned property. Housing options are the alternatives to Social Housing that may make it easy and quicker for you to move house.


What housing options are available?

There are lots of different options available but they are not suitable for everyone. Using this assessment tool, you will be able to see which options are suitable for you. Some of the available options include:

  • Shared ownership
  • Mutual Exchange
  • Social Housing
  • Mortgage rescue
  • Sheltered housing
  • Overcrowded

Our promise to you
