Apply for a rented property

We have a range of homes to choose from in various locations across Gloucestershire. If you’ve decided you’d like to move to a Severn Vale Housing home, you will need to follow our simple allocation process, which is explained below.

  1. Register online with Gloucester Homeseeker Plus.
  2. Once we receive your application we will carry out a credit check, full affordability assessment and check previous addresses.
  3. Once your application has been submitted you’re ready to start bidding for suitable properties, although you won’t be offered a home until your application has been approved.

Points to consider

Through Gloucestershire Homeseeker Plus you can make up to three bids each week. The weekly bidding cycle ends at midnight on Tuesday each week. All bids for SVHS properties are reviewed as soon as possible and the successful applicant will receive an offer of accommodation by email or phone. Please make sure you check messages as if we are unable to contact you we will re-offer the property.

You will be offered a viewing of the property and we will arrange a sign-up meeting to go through the tenancy agreement and other important documents before you move in. If you fail to attend a viewing/sign-up, or other arranged appointments without giving suitable notice your application will be cancelled and you not qualify for SVHS accommodation for 12 months.

Applicants offered a property are required to pay one weeks rent in advance prior to the tenancy agreement being signed.

Market rent properties

We own a number of one and two bedroom apartments, and three and four bedroom houses which are available for market rent. These properties are based on private rented properties and offered on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) basis.
