There are very few properties available through social housing. Most people are more likely to find a new home by renting privately.
If you are on a low income and looking for private properties to rent, you may be able to get help through either:
- the Bond Assurance Scheme. This scheme can help with a deposit for a private landlord if you can’t afford a deposit.
- the Rent In Advance Scheme. This scheme can pay up to a month’s rent in advance if you receive or will receive Housing Benefit.
