Apply for social housing

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Rochdale Borough Council doesn't own council houses, which are now known as social housing. They're all owned and managed by Rochdale Boroughwide Housing (RBH).​ You can apply to rent from RBH, or any registered provider (Housing Association).​

Rochdale Home Choice advertises all available accommodation for RBH and its partners in the Rochdale borough.

Am I eligible?

​​​Anyone can apply for social housing, but to be eligible ​you must satisfy the eligibility criteria. Each provider may have their own criteria, you'll need to contact them for more details. ​RBH allocates ​properties based on the criteria in our ​​​​Housing Allocation policy​​. ​

​​​​​​Registered providers (Housing Associations)

All social housing needs in the Rochdale borough are met by registered providers (Housing Associations)​.​​​​​
