    The housing register is a waiting list of applicants applying for social housing. Homes are allocated on the basis of housing need, length of time on the register and choice of area and property type. We have formed a partnership with Housing Associations who have properties in Ryedale, so that most social rented properties are let through one single housing register.

    Yorkshire Housing
    Home Group
    Broadacres
    Sanctuary
    Chevin (Together Housing)
    Stonewater

    How do I apply for a Housing Association property in Ryedale?

    The Council is a member of North Yorkshire Home Choice, North Yorkshire's way of allocating council and housing association properties for rent and some shared ownership properties for sale.

    We aim to give you more choice in deciding where you want to live and choose a home which best suits your needs. Properties that are available for rent are advertised weekly. If you are eligible and qualify to join the register you can express an interest (bid) on properties you would like to be considered for. Please be aware that you must actively bid for properties yourself, in order to be considered.

    North Yorkshire Homechoice is a partnership of 10 partner landlords which, including Ryedale District Council and consists of :- City of York Council, Craven District Council, Hambleton District Council, Richmondshire District Council, Scarborough District Council, Selby District Council, Yorkshire Coast Homes, Yorkshire Housing and Broadacres Housing Association.

    Applicants are required to register online and must meet certain qualifying criteria.

    Housing Association stock in Ryedale

    We aim to provide applicants with as much information as possible in order that they can make informed decisions about where they would like to live. Last year 920 applications were processed in Ryedale and AS OF April 2016 there were 748 active applicants registered with Yorkshire Housing in Ryedale (who administer the list on behalf of Ryedale District Council).

    In 2015-16 Yorkshire Housing, the largest housing association provider in the area, let 289 (272 relets, 17 new builds) properties, which makes up approximately 10% of their total housing stock in the area.

    As you can see, we cannot help everyone but if you are flexible about the areas and property types you are willing to consider, the more chance you will have of being re-housed with us. To help you, we have produced a table showing the location of all housing association properties in Ryedale, along with the number and type of property within each area, available to download below.

    This table is made up of properties owned by; Yorkshire Housing, Home Group, Broadacres, Sanctuary, Chevin, Stonewater, North Star Housing Group. All of these providers advertise 100% of their housing stock on North Yorkshire Home Choice, using the agreed policy.

    Chevin only advertise 50% of their housing stock in Ryedale through North Yorkshire Home Choice. The other 50% is advertised through their own waiting list. You can apply for these directly through their website. They have 2 schemes in Ryedale, one in Malton and one in Helmsley. 

    Where can I get Housing Options Advice
