Find a home
'Cumbria Choice' is the housing register for people looking for social rented homes throughout South Lakeland. To apply to join the housing register you must be over 16 years of age. You will need to complete an application form, which can be accessed here.
Once accepted onto the register you can 'Bid' for properties advertised on the website or in newssheets available at the offices of all the housing providers and Local Authorities within Cumbria.
Cumbria Choice operates one allocations policy. This means that all the partner landlords will assess people's priority for housing using the same policy.
All South Lakes Housing's customers now have free access to homeswapper allowing you to find your ideal mutual exchange, searching for potential matches with thousands of other tenants from all over the country.
Registration is free, quick, easy and secure.
This is a scheme where someone who needs a small amount of help to live independently in their own home is matched with someone who has a housing need and can provide support or companionship.
