Find a home to rent

We provide a wide range of homes to suit different customers.

Anyone aged 16 or over can apply to rent a Stonewater home, although if you are aged 16 or 17 you will need to prove that you can support yourself and pay your rent.

Properties available for immediate rent

We occasionally have some properties available to let directly. Find out more.

How to find a home to rent

There are three different ways you can find and apply to rent a Stonewater home:

Choice-Based Lettings

Direct waiting list

Moving soon

Choice-Based Lettings

We rent most of our homes through Choice-Based Lettings (CBL) schemes, which are operated by local councils. Homes are allocated through CBL according to local Council’s allocations policies.

If you wish to register for housing in a local authority area you will need to contact your local council. Their website will give you information on their allocations criteria and how to register.

We rent some of our properties to people from our direct waiting list without the involvement of your local authority. We accept a limited number of applicants for each waiting list.

Shelter provides more information about the CBL process.

Direct waiting list

We do not currently have a direct waiting list for general needs properties.

For information on our open Retirement Living waiting lists, please visit our Retirement Living page.

Moving soon

Moving soon is an online waiting list for people who need to find a home. Stonewater and other registered landlords use this site to advertise some properties.

To sign up, just go to the Moving soon website and register with your name and an email address. Once you've registered, you will be able to save the areas where you want to live and the type of property you are searching for.

When a home matching your choices is advertised, Moving soon will email you, and you are then able to 'express an interest'.

Please note that any Stonewater home applied for through Moving soon will be allocated according to our allocations criteria, including from any direct waiting list that is in place for any property.
