There are a few different ways you can apply to rent a property from Sanctuary Housing Association, including:
Through your local authority

We hold our own waiting lists for properties in some areas of the country.
You can apply to be put on one of our open waiting lists by calling 0800 131 3348 or filling out our online form and selecting ‘new housing application'.
Please be aware that not all our areas have open waiting lists to join.
Choice Based Lettings schemes
If you are already a Sanctuary resident or a tenant with another social housing provider, you could consider swapping your home through a mutual exchange.
Mutual exchange is often the best way to obtain the house you want in your chosen area.
To find someone to exchange your home with, register on HomeSwapper. This is a free online service and will help you find other residents who are also looking for a mutual exchange.
