Homes to rent

How do I rent a Tuntum house?

​Houses are allocated based on the size of the family, and the level of housing need. The assessment of housing need is usually undertaken by the Local Authority.

​In the majority of areas that we work in, properties are allocated via a choice-based lettings (CBL) scheme. This system allows applicants more say in which property they will be offered.

How it works: choice-based lettings

  • Submit an application form via your Local Authority - choose your authority from the links below.
  • Once your application has been approved, you will receive a bidding reference and a banding priority.
  • All available social housing properties in the area you are registered will be listed either online or in a newspaper for one or two weeks. During this time, you can bid for up to three properties you are eligible for.
  • Details of the applicant(s) are passed to our Housing Officers. This may be a single application or a short-list of applications.
  • The applicant with the highest priority will be contacted by telephone and in writing to make a provisional offer. You will need to complete an application form, which will allow us to gather information regarding your household, your housing history, and your individual housing needs, and we will carry out an affordability assessment. This will be followed by landlord reference checks, and housing benefit assessments (where appropriate).
  • Once we are happy with the information collected, we will contact you to make a formal offer of accommodation and arrange for a date to view and sign the tenancy agreement.

We may not offer a property if the applicant has a history of, or is at risk of:

  • Anti-social behavior
  • Damaging property
  • Rent arrears at a previous or current property

 

Renting directly from us

We sometimes have a small number of properties available to rent directly through us, and not through the local authority CBL scheme. You can apply for these by sending us an application form - you can only use this form to apply for houses listed below, and you will need to specify on the form which property you are applying for. For a wider choice of properties, please register with your local authority as described above. 

Applicants will normally need to be in full-time employment in order to qualify for this type of property. We will always assess these applications based on housing need. However, these properties are generally offered on a first come first served basis. Please note that we will only contact successful applicants.

Please contact us or call 0115 916 6066 for more information.
