How to become a resident

There are several ways to become a GreenSquare resident.

For Affordable or social rented homes

We do not hold our own waiting lists, and applications must be made through a local authority. This may be through your own local authority, or some work in partnership with others.

Details of choice-based lettings systems in areas we have homes are detailed below. If your application is successful, you will either be able to bid for GreenSquare homes through their systems or they will nominate you to one of our homes.

We may however have a small number of homes available to rent here. This will be let on a first come, first served basis, in accordance with our Allocation and Lettings Policy.

Rentplus

We will shortly be offering new homes through Rentplus. This is a new type of affordable housing aimed at people who aspire to home ownership. Each property will be on the scheme for an agreed period of between 5 and 20 years and at the end of the agreed period each home is sold, preferably to the existing tenant with a gifted deposit.

GreenSquare is set to offer six properties via this scheme during the summer (2016) in Lechlade. Keep an eye out on Gloucester Homeseeker service through Cotswold District Council, on our website to find out future developments.

Mutual Exchange

If you are a current tenant of another social landlord, you can find residents to exchange homes with by visiting www.homeswapper.co.uk. This is a national house swap website that our residents use when they are looking to move home. Once registered, you are able to search for potential swaps. See our mutual exchange page for more information.

Shared Ownership

Shared ownership (New Build HomeBuy) enables you to part-buy and part-rent your own home. It's an ideal option for people who cannot afford to buy a property outright on the open market. You buy a share in a property and pay a subsidised rent on the remainder. You have the same rights and responsibilities as any other leasehold homeowner.

You can gradually buy more shares if you want to, until you own the whole property. To be able to buy a house under this scheme, you must be in housing need and unable to afford to buy a home on the open market.

You can apply by logging on to www.helptobuysouth.co.uk and completing their online application form. Alternatively, you can call Help To Buy South on 0845 604 11 22 or email info@helptobuysouth.co.uk. Once registered, you then let us know you’ve done this.
