If you’re looking for affordable rented accommodation you will need to register with your local authority to join their allocations scheme.
From 1 April 2018, bpha no longer manages the Housing Register on behalf of Bedford Borough Council. You can apply to join the Bedford Borough Housing Register via Bedford Borough Council’s online lettings website MyHomeOptions. You will need to register an account and complete an application form.
If you already rent a bpha home, but need to move because the property no longer meets your needs, you may (with our written permission) be able to swap homes with another tenant by doing a Mutual Exchange.
See more information on our Mutual exchange page.
Low Cost Home Ownership
Buying a home may be more affordable than you think. Our sales department Domovo has helped thousands of people across eastern and central England to buy a place of their own with our range of affordable home ownership schemes.
Right to Buy
If you have bought your home from us using your preserved right-to-buy, you can sell it at any time at whatever price you can get on the open market. If you sell within the first five years you will have to repay part of the discount that you were allowed and part of any profit you make.
Before you go ahead and market your property you should first give us the opportunity to buy it back from you (unless you purchased it more than 10 years ago). Please contact us for more information.
If you are currently living in one of our Shared Ownership homes and wish to purchase more shares (staircasing) or sell the property then please contact our Asset Sales Team on 0845 456 6757.
