Welcome to Nottingham HomeLinkkey in the door image

Nottingham HomeLink is the one-stop way to find a rented home in the city.

HomeLink is a 'choice-based' lettings scheme where you 'bid' for properties. You can do this through this website, on the phone or at a local housing office.

HomeLink is a partnership between Nottingham City Homes, Nottingham City Council and 11 registered providers (sometimes known as 'housing associations'):

How HomeLink works

You apply and register, then get your reference number and 'band'. The 'band' shows the level of priority you have.

All newly vacant properties are advertised every week from Friday at 12 noon. You can view all available properties on this website or at your local housing office, but you will have to log in to bid.

When you log in you will only see properties which you are eligible for. You can currently make as many bids as you want, but please only bid for properties you are definitely interested in.

Please note that you will not be able to view your bidding position on each property that you place a bid for. This is because your bidding position may not always be an accurate reflection of your position on the short-list, which could cause confusion.

Use the links on this page for more information including other housing options.

Important information

The Allocations Policy is currently under review to ensure it reflects the Homeless Reduction Act and meets the requirements of Nottingham citizens. If you are threatened with homelessness, you should contact Housing Aid at Nottingham City Council for advice. Alternatively, you can contact the Nottingham HomeLink team for general housing advice.

There are some changes that have come into effect, or will be coming into effect in the near future, that you need to be aware of before you take on a tenancy. The documents below provide the details. If you have any questions about this, call us on 0115 746 9977.

Rent in Advance

Nottingham now has Universal Credit – if you are aged between 18-65 and have to claim or are in receipt of Employment Support allowance, Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support, Working Tax Credits, Child Tax Credits and Housing Benefit, you will at some point go onto Universal Credit. For Universal Credit you will need a bank account, e-mail Address and phone number to make or maintain a claim. More information can be found at: www.nottinghamcityhomes.org.uk/uc
