Housing Management

Welcome to your new Residents' Handbook

Your landlord is Wiltshire Rural Housing Association Ltd. (the Association) whose name will be on your Tenancy Agreement.

Your home is owned by the Association, and is not subject to the Right to Buy.

What is a Housing Association?

Housing Association, also known as Registered Providers, are non-profit making bodies which receive money from central government to provide accommodation to those in need.  This is done by either modernising sold sub-standard properties or building new.  As the Association is funded by central government (via an agency called Homes and Communities), it is accountable to them for the money it spends, the building standards it achieves and the rent charged.  It is run by an unpaid voluntary Board who decides the policies of the Association, and staff who put those policies into practice.
