    The members of the Adactus Group Structure let over 1,200 homes every year.

    Each week, we have a number of homes that are readily available to let now.  We update this list at least once a week and new homes are added.  You can  check for new properties on our website, on Rightmove or use the Connect contact centre service to contact us. The eligibility criteria for these homes are included in the description of each property advertised.  These properties are available on first come, first served basis.

    To rent one of our other properties you will need to make a housing application either to us to join our marketing list or to your local authority who can nominate you to us typically through what's called a Choice-Based Lettings scheme.

    There are currently four main ways to access our homes:-


    To be eligible to apply to us you need to be:

    • 18 years or older (or over 16, subject to a separate assessment).
    • A UK Citizen or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
  • Where our properties are

    Our homes are primarily allocated to people with Housing Need.  In addition to this, we also operate a number of Local Lettings Policies.  This allows us to make rehousing offers that fit with local community needs, for example we can offer in these areas priority to working households and people with community connections.

    We have nominations agreements with all Local Authorities where we have stock and a number of our empty homes are set aside for nominations from Local Authorities such as Manchester City Council, Chorley Borough Council and Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council.  This ensures that reasonable preference is given to applicants in greatest need such as homelessness applicants, people fleeing Domestic Violence, overcrowding and applicants with medical needs. 

    When an allocation is made, either through a nomination or a direct offer from us, we aim to develop stable communities and that preference is also given to applicants with a local connection to the area, either through work and family connections.

    When one of our homes becomes empty, we carry out refurbishment works to ensure it meets our agreed Relet Standard.  Most if not all works are completed when the property is empty, including replacement of kitchens and bathrooms where necessary.  In most instances, we also offer a moving in decorating package, whereby decorating vouchers worth up to £280 (for a three bedroomed house) are provided.

    When a property becomes empty, we endeavour to offer it out as soon as possible.  The initial offer is made on a 'provisional' basis in that we occassionally have to withdraw an offer if for example the outgoing tenant withdraws their notice, or in emergency circumstances such as fire or flood where we need to urgently rehouse a tenant.

    Once the offer of accommodation is confirmed, we will invite you in for a Let Interview where final eligibility checks are made and keys released.  This interview typically takes around 1 hour where the Tenancy Agreement (the contract between the Association and you) is explained.

    We monitor tenancies in the first 12 months and if any tenants have support needs we will make all necessary referrals.
