What's the best way to find a Stonewater home to rent?
There are several different ways you can find and apply for a Stonewater home:
- Choice-Based Lettings
- Interested parties lists for our Retirement Living homes
- Moving Soon
Choice based lettings
We rent most of our homes through Choice-Based Lettings (CBL) schemes, which are operated by Local Authorities.
Homes are allocated through CBL according to Local Authorities' 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.
Your Local Authority will be the same one that deals with your refuse collection and council tax.
Shelter provides more information about the CBL process.
Interested parties lists
Stonewater do not hold waiting lists for our homes.
We do however hold interested parties registers for our specialist Retirement Living homes. For more information on this and to read more about our offer for those over 55, please visit our dedicated Retirement Living page.
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.
