Finding a home to rent

Help in finding a home to rent in Aldershot and Farnborough.

Private renting

Renting privately can give you the flexibility to chose where you want to live and the type of home that is suitable for your needs. You can often find out about home available for rent:

  • By word of mouth
  • In local newspapers and magazines
  • In shop windows and notice boards
  • Through letting agencies and accommodation agencies
  • Online

You could also advertise in a local newspaper, shop window or notice board. The advert should say what you are looking for and how much rent you can afford to pay.

If you think you cannot afford to pay rent, you may be able to get financial help to have some or all your rent paid..

Be safe when visiting a property - take someone with you or let someone know when and where you are going.

Housing association homes

Housing associations are independent housing organisations registered with the Housing Corporation under the Housing Act 1996. They are also known as Registered Social Landlords (RSLs). Trusts and Co-operatives can also be Registered Social Landlords.

We work with a number of Registered Social Landlords who are developing new homes in Rushmoor. We advertise these and existing housing association homes through our Rushmoor Home Finder scheme.

Intermediate market rent

Some housing association offer properties on an intermediate market rent tenure. In Rushmoor, they are available through Homes in Hants. Rents are typically 20% lower than private rents, giving you the chance to save towards a deposit to buy at a later stage.

Key worker properties

Housing associations offer rented homes to key workers. These are people, who work for organisations, such as:

  • NHS
  • State-funded schools
  • Police
  • Prison service
  • Probation service
  • Social services

You can find a full list of key worker groups on the Homes in Hants website
