Middlesbrough social housing is managed by private landlords, who are known as registered social landlords. There are also charitable organisations who offer accommodation in North Yorkshire or Middlesbrough. If you wish to apply for housing in Middlesbrough, you can approach a housing association. Middlesbrough social housing is exclusive to housing organisations run by private landlords. As of April 2023, North Yorkshire Home Choice will be in charge of housing throughout North Yorkshire.
Housing associations are run by registered social landlords capable of issuing low rent houses to those on a low income. These social landlords provide housing support throughout Middlesbrough and North Yorkshire. Within Middlesbrough itself, housing associations are the primary way to find affordable housing near you. Remember, just because you live in a low income social house, does not mean your right to seek compensation for disrepair is any less than that of a person living in a privately rented home.
Those living in council homes or in houses provided by registered social landlords have the opportunity to rent a property for below the area’s average rental prices. You may be temporarily or permanently rehomed with a housing association in North Yorkshire or Middlesbrough. Although the associations take care of many of the social houses in the area, not all homes provided are in the best state of repair. Housing associations and older council properties in the area are liable to fall into a state of disrepair faster simply due to the age of the building.
