Renting a home from GUHG

GUHG works in partnerships with a number of local authorities who are responsible for the housing waiting lists. Before you can rent a property from GUHG you will need to apply to your local authority first.

Intermediate or Market Rent

Intermediate rented properties are generally owned by housing associations and the rents are typically set at 80% (or less) of market rents. They are offered on assured shorthold tenancies with a minimum term of 6 months, similar to private renting.

Market rented properties are also generally owned by housing associations and the rents are set at market rents, the same as private renting. They are offered on assured shorthold tenancies with a minimum term of twelve months.
