This page explains how to register for housing association properties advertised through North Yorkshire Home Choice and/or directly to those housing associations with their own waiting lists.
Craven District Council is part of the North Yorkshire Choice Based Lettings Partnership, which consists of six North Yorkshire local councils and partner social landlords.
Nearly 90% of rented social housing in Craven is advertised through HomeChoice. The remaining 10% is held by housing associations who hold their own waiting lists. For information on the social housing stock in Craven, where in the district it is located, what type of properties and the quantity of each type of dwelling, please see our Social Housing Stocklist.
For information about properties available to buy, please go to our Low cost home ownership options web page.
