Renting

To rent a home from us, you need to join the housing register run by the local council where you want to live. 

Your application for housing (or to move home if you are already a FGCH resident), will be assessed by the local council in accordance with their own Allocation Policy. You will be awarded a priority for housing depending upon how they assess your housing need. 

We let very few of our properties directly, and in most cases when one of our homes becomes empty we ask the local council to advertise the property for us on their Choice Based Lettings site. If eligible, applicants and existing FGCH residents, who are on the relevant housing register, can then express their interest in one of our properties (called bidding). The council will send us the details of successful applicants (called a nomination).

Visit your local council website below for more information:

When we receive a nomination from the council we will ask the applicant to complete a form to check they meet our own allocation policy. Here is our current  Allocations Policy 177KB  

There are two exceptions to this process.  The application process for the Greenfields Sheltered Scheme in Cuffley is done directly through FGCH as are applications for 2 bedroom bungalows in Letchworth.  In these cases we do not seek a nomination from the local council.
