Homes to Rent

The majority of the homes that THCH manages are rental properties, with allocations handled by the local authority prioritised according to need.

THCH does not operate a direct waiting list for tenants – you’ll need to register with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. They will then consider your application, and provide you with a priority banding depending on your personal circumstances. Depending on your banding, they may house you, put you on a waiting list or advise you of alternative options.

There is a limited supply of social housing in the borough, with over 20,000 applications currently on the housing register. Unfortunately, most who apply will have little or no chance of being offered a home as only 1 in 10 applicants stand a chance of being made an offer. Even those applicants who qualify to be on the housing register  may have to wait a long time.

If you are accepted onto the register then you must bid for properties as part of the borough-wide Choice Based Lettings (CBL) scheme for Council and Housing Association properties in Tower Hamlets. 

All of our vacant properties, as well as all other available properties in the borough, can be found on the Tower Hamlets Homeseekers website.
