Although Colne manages over 3,000 properties across Essex, on average we only let two or three properties a week. The majority of our homes are let to people who are nominated by their local council or who bid via Choice Based Lettings for vacancies. We only accept applications for our waiting list from older people looking for sheltered accommodation, who are over 55 and retired from their main job of employment.
We have the following low cost home ownership properties for re-sale.
We also process transfers and mutual exchanges for residents who need or want to move to another property within Colne. Alternatively you can also apply for a mutual exchange with another housing association or council.
If you do not meet the criteria for sheltered housing and are looking for housing, you may wish to consider applying to the local authority in the area that you want to live. Colne works with the following councils:
