Welcome to Arches Housing - we're really excited that you're considering joining us!
The first thing to know about applying for an Arches home is that we do not have our own waiting list for empty properties.
Instead, most of our homes are let through the local authorities in Sheffield and Rotherham. To apply for one of our homes, you will need to join your local council's housing list.
Choice-based letting scheme applications
Sheffield and Rotherham councils use a choice-based letting (CBL) scheme which lets you tell your council which properties you're interested in.
Join the Sheffield and Rotherham choice-based letting schemes here:
You can bid on our properties through the choice-based letting schemes or you may be nominated for a property by your local council based on your needs.
When we are looking at a nomination from a council, we have lots of things to think about such as how to make best use of the home and how we can make the community as sustainable as we can, so we might not always necessarily offer a property to the nominee with the highest priority.
