Community Lettings Scheme
Origin Housing considers applications for rehousing from sons and daughters of existing tenants if your property is family-sized and overcrowded. To be eligible for this scheme you must be 18 years or over and living in the family home continuously since childhood. If you have children you will not be considered.
If you would like to apply for this scheme, please complete the Community Lettings Scheme Application form and call the Lettings team to book an appointment with an advisor. Please have your proof of address showing that you have been living in the property continuously since childhood and proof of your income.

If you rent a home through a Registered Social Landlord you may be eligible for the the Right to Acquire scheme. In order to qualify, your home must have been built or purchased by a Registered Social Landlord with a social housing grant on or after 1 April 1997.
