Are you eligible?

You must live or work in Hackney or the City of Westminster and be able to pay the rent without recourse to Housing Benefit. 

Rents

Rents are set using our unique Personalised Rent model; a ‘means-tested rent’ where rents are not set according to the property size, but according to the tenant’s circumstances.

We do this by using the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s research into living costs to calculate how much rent a tenant can afford to pay. The final rental figure is determined by household size; the age and the needs of those people; as well as household income. 

1 Bed from £214.21

2 Bed from £261.41

3 Bed from £341.29

Homes will be offered to applicants from the highest priority group first and cascaded down to the next priority group, until all available homes have been allocated. Where two applicants from the same priority group wish to accept an offer, offers will be made to:

  1. The applicant with the lowest household income for one bedroom properties (followed by earliest registration date should a tie exist between applicants)
  2. The applicant whose household has the greatest housing need for the number of bedrooms for a two bedroom property (followed by lowest household income, then earliest registration date should a tie exist between applicants)
