Choice Based Lettings
If you are interested in applying for social housing you will need to join the Choice Based Lettings scheme.
• Blaby, Melton, Oadby and Wigston, Harborough, Hinckley and Bosworth, North West Leicestershire and Charnwood councils all run the Choice Based Lettings Scheme.
• You only need one application if you want to apply to any of the district councils in Leicestershire (not including Leicester City).
• Blaby District Council does not own any properties. The properties advertised through the scheme are from registered providers (housing associations) or other local authorities.
• When the properties are available the housing associations will advertise them on the Choice Based Lettings website. When you have an active housing application you can put 'bids' on these properties.
You can apply by completing a form online HERE or printing off and completing a application below.
All housing associations are now asking for rent in advance when you are offered a property through the council.
This is usually 1-2 weeks rent.
You should start saving some money when you apply for housing as the council are not able to help you with money to move into social housing.
