What Are Housing Association Properties?
Housing associations are privately run organisations that work to provide safe affordable homes to those who need them. The organisations are non-profits and any money they make goes back into the houses they provide.
Housing associations aim to make sure that everyone who needs a home can have access to one. These properties are cheap and affordable to run but are still safe and secure homes.
Some housing association properties are designed with certain residents in mind, such as sheltered housing for the elderly and the disabled who need more specialised equipment in their homes.
Housing associations are a great option for those on lower incomes who can’t afford a house at the moment but still need a place to live whilst they are saving up to get their own home.
Although its widely believed that housing association properties are for people with certain needs or low incomes, this is not the case and anyone can apply for housing association properties but the person who is deemed to need it the most will be more likely to get the property.
You can read more about this in our Lettings and Allocations policy.
