We work with local councils to provide homes for people looking to move into affordable properties. The bidding process and housing waiting lists are run by the councils so Futures doesn't decide who gets priority for our homes.
Unlike many homes in the private rental sector, our affordable homes are rented out unfurnished. This is normal for housing association properties and usually means that there will be no carpets or floor coverings, no curtains or blinds, no furniture, and no white goods (cookers, fridges etc) in the kitchen - so you will need to arrange to have these fitted once you have moved in. We have a 'lettable standard' that explains what you can expect to find in your new home.

Swap your home
You can view and swap homes via HomeSwapper - one of the largest mutual exchange platforms in the UK with around half a million registered users.
There are conditions though. Generally you may exchange if:
- The move does not lead to overcrowding or substantial under-occupation of a property.
- You don't owe rent.
- The other landlord has agreed to the exchange.
- The exchange does not breach any planning regulations.
- You get our permission in writing.
- There is no ongoing legal action linked to your tenancy.
