We use a set of lettings criteria decide who is eligible for which type of property.
This allows us to make the best use of housing stock and help you make informed choices about the homes available.
Property adverts online will clearly identify who is eligible and will include a minimum age; family composition; any adaptations; and if pets are allowed.
For eligibility, a household consists of only those living there on a permanent and full-time basis.
