We offer a range of tenancies in our properties, including social and affordable rent, market rent and intermediate rent.  While market rent options are available to all, social and intermediate options are discounted and have eligibility criteria that define who is able to take advantage of these discounted rates.  The tool below is designed to help you understand what you might be eligible for, and to explain what you should do next to find out more.
