Properties owned and manged by councils, housing associations, housing trusts and charities. There is not much of it available and there is a very high demand. There is no 'right' to social housing.
From 1st April 2013 Aragon will issue 5 year Fixed Term tenancies to some new tenants. In the first year it is normally an introductory or starter tenancy, which offers a higher level of support to make sure the tenancy starts well. Once this period has been satisfactorily carried out the 5 year fixed term tenancy commences.
All our newly built properties will be let on 'affordable rents'. Usually these are more expensive than the normal social housing rents and are set at 80% of the market rent.
Aragon Housing Association works in partnership with the three councils in Bedfordshire (Bedford, Central Bedfordshire and Luton) and bpha, who all operate the same allocations policy and advertise available properties through the Bedfordshire Homefinder choice based lettings scheme.
