Finding a home to rent from a Housing Association
Carlisle City Council no longer have any houses. They belong to Riverside Carlisle (formerly Carlisle Housing Association) which is responsible for letting, maintaining and managing these properties.
You can get a housing application form from Riverside Carlisle, English Gate Plaza, Botchergate, Carlisle, Tel: 0845 345 8500. Information about their Lettings Policy will be provided with this form.
The demand for their properties is very high and there are limited vacancies and so it could be some time before they offer you a property. The waiting time for a property may vary depending on the area you chose. Housing Officers at Riverside Carlisle will be able to give you information regarding waiting times and the areas where properties are more readily available.
If you are planning to live in rented accommodation for a long time, housing associations offer cheaper rents and more secure tenancies.
