Finding a home to rent

In 2003, Bradford 'Council houses' were transferred to Incommunities (formerly Bradford Community Housing Trust).

Incommunities is the major social housing provider in the Bradford district, managing almost 22,500 houses, flats and sheltered housing.

Social housing is allocated through Bradford Homes. 

Applying for a home

Go to the Bradford Homes website and complete the online application form.

Are you homeless, or about to become homeless?

If you are currently homeless, or you are about to become homeless, you can get help from the Housing Options Service.

Renting from a private landlord

The Private Sector Lettings Scheme works with Bradford Council's Housing Options Service to assist customers to find good quality private rented accommodation.

You can apply for properties available through the Private Sector Lettings Scheme by visiting the Bradford Homes website and completing the online application form for housing. From 1 April 2020, you are able to place bids on privately rented accommodation.

The Housing Options Service

The Housing Options Service can help you with all sorts of housing related problems. Together we can look at your situation and decide on the best way to help you tackle your problems to enjoy trouble-free housing.
