Local Housing Associations

Local Housing Associations

Housing Associations are non-profit making, independent bodies which build and manage accommodation and provide support to those in housing need




In the Flintshire area there are a number of properties managed by different Housing Associations.


Housing Associations also have their own housing waiting lists from which they allocate 50% of their empty homes to people who are on this list. The other 50% of the Association's properties are "nominated" to Flintshire County Council. As well as being on the Council's waiting list you can also apply to the Housing Associations directly


Anyone over the age of 16 can apply to a Housing Association Waiting List but you should consider the following:


  • Where do you want to live - is there Housing Association properties in that area ?
  • How long will you have to wait for a property?
  • Would renting privately suit you better?

Nominations


Housing Associations are required by the Welsh Assembly Government to help the Council find accommodation for those in need. They must ask the Council to provide names, i.e "nominees" for at least 50% of their properties that become empty. Flintshire County Council is able to nominate applicants from its own housing waiting list to Housing Associations with properties in the borough.
