We have three types of properties available.
Properties to Rent
How to Register your Expression of Interest in a property
You can register an expression of interest from here on properties that are shown as available for rent, providing you are registered on the East Staffordshire Housing waiting list. You will need your housing application number to register an expression of interest.
In partnership with other Registered Social Landlords in the area, Trent & Dove Housing also advertises properties to rent their behalf. If you see a property that you are interested in which, for example, is owned by Orbit Housing simply register your interest in the normal way. We will then forward your details on to that Landlord and, if you are successful, they will contact you to discuss an offer.
You can place an expression of interest against any advertised property by simply entering your details in the requested fields. It is only necessary to register your interest once on each property that you are interested in.
Keeping a pet - Unless it is otherwise stated in the vacancy advert, many of our properties do allow pets to be kept subject to our policy or type of pet you are considering. You can download a copy of our 'Keeping Pets' leaflet or check with the housing office if you believe that keeping a pet may be an issue. Click here to see a copy of our keeping pets leaflet...
Important Note regarding expressions of interest placed on properties:
We are currently receiving a high number of refused offers from applicants who have registered an expression of interest for properties in areas they do not really want. Please be sure that you are interested in living in the particular area before registering an interest on a property. Also be aware that your actions may delay someone else in need of housing getting the property they need.

Shared Ownership Schemes
Trent & Dove Housing provides an opportunity to assist people in buying their own home. Newly built properties are available on various developments throughout East Staffordshire and surrounding areas.
Shared Ownership enables you to take your first step in home ownership by buying an initial share of between 25% and 75% of a property, through either a mortgage or savings. An affordable monthly rent is then payable to Trent & Dove Housing on the remaining share.
You will enjoy all the benefits of a brand new home, knowing your money is invested in bricks and mortar and that you have made the important step on the property ladder.
As your circumstances or finances change you can then buy further shares in the property.
