Our homes

Raglan operates in 95 local authority areas. Our homes range from one bedroom flats to larger houses. 
 
All of our homes meet the government’s Decent Homes Standard and provide residents with a safe, comfortable and welcoming place to live. We offer a variety of homes to people with different needs. 
 

Homes to rent 

  • Over 80% of our homes are rented properties. The majority of these are let through local authorities choice based lettings schemes

  • We build new homes for rent and also re-let homes as they become available. If you want to rent a home from us you need to register with the relevant local authority in the area where you want to live. The majority of councils operate a choice based lettings scheme and once you have been accepted onto the housing list, you will be able to look at all affordable properties advertised by the local authority which match your needs.

How does choice based lettings work? 

Rather than homes being allocated by the local authority, choice based lettings allow prospective tenants to bid for available properties they are interested in.The local authority will provide us with a list of people who qualify for available properties. The authority will consider the type and size of the home and where it is located.he property is offered to the person who has the highest level of need on the housing register. The local authority will base your priority for a home on a variety of factors, such as your housing needs and any special circumstances that you may have.
