The first thing anyone in need of housing should do is to register with the local authority where housing is required.
Most of our properties are subject to nomination agreements with the relevant local authority. This means that a percentage of our lettings will be made to people nominated to us from the local council housing waiting list.
We therefore advise everyone to ensure that they register their requirement for housing with the local council where they need to be rehoused.

Applying for housing on the Isles of Scilly
The Council of the Isles of Scilly can be contacted:
Most of the properties we own in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have been built subject to planning or other restrictions as to who can occupy them. This means that we can only re-house anyone who can demonstrate a local connection with a village or a parish where we have properties.
The precise definition of a “local connection” varies according to where the properties are located.
However, it will generally mean that you must currently either live or work in the parish, or have lived there recently and had to move away to find housing or work, or have close family in the parish who either need your support or can provide you with support.
We will not be able to assist you with housing if you cannot demonstrate a connection with a village or parish where one of our developments is located.
Please contact us if you require further information about our homes or if you require an application form to be registered on our interested parties list.
Since its formation in 1985 CRHA has completed 50 developments in village locations ranging in size from 1 home up to 25 and currently has 346 homes in management, 330 for rent and 16 for shared ownership. Committed to Quality CRHA is committed to providing good quality housing which complements the areas in which it works. Its… Read More.
