Social rented homes

East Thames has a range of social rented homes available through local authority housing lists, including affordable rent properties.
The areas we cover are: Newham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Harlow, Epping Forest and Essex.
To be eligible for any of these homes, you'll need to be on your local authority's (council) waiting list.
These housing waiting lists work on the level of need and priority is given to people who:
  • are homeless
  • are living in insanitary, overcrowded or unsatisfactory housing
  • need to move for medical or welfare reasons
  • need to move to a particular area to avoid hardship
Further details on the eligibility criteria and how to apply can be found on the Shelter website or our housing options toolkit.
