How do I get a council or housing association property?

You need to be accepted on to the Dacorum Borough Council Housing Register - this register is now run through this Moving with Dacorum website. For more details on how to apply read the How to Use this Service section.

 

What are intermediate Properties

The Council advertises some intermediate properties through Moving with Dacorum on behalf of its parner housing associations. The rent levels for these properties are higher than social rents, but less than local private market rents. Applicants must meet additional criteria in order to be allocated these properties. Further information on this housing option is available through http://www.helptobuyese.org.uk/

 

What is the difference between a council and a housing association property?

Council properties are owned and managed by Dacorum Borough Council. The council is the landlord.

Housing associations also provide affordable homes. The rents and terms are broadly similar and you bid for properties in the same way. The main difference is that the housing association owns and manages the property and is the landlord.

 

Where can I find details of available properties?

Properties are advertised each week on the Moving with Dacorum website. Properties that you are eligible for can be viewed on your My Account page. You can also search all properties through the Property Search page.

Paper Moving with Dacorum handouts outlining available properties can be obtained from the Dacorum Borough Council offices in Hemel Hempstead, Tring and Berkhamsted. In special circumstances these property handouts can be sent to you.
