To get a home rented from a Manchester housing association, the Council, or another not-for-profit landlord you must register for rehousing.
Do this on the Manchester Move website which is run by the Council and other not-for-profit landlords. This is a choice-based rehousing system that allows you to look for homes that you are interested in yourself.
Once you have registered and provided the proofs needed to check your application your account will be made 'live'. You can then start looking for a home on Manchester Move. The more flexible you are with what you want, the faster you will find a home.
There's a high demand for homes with not-for-profit landlords.
You’re more likely to find something if you’re given a high 'rehousing priority' after registering. This could be because you're threatened with homelessness, or you're suffering from overcrowding, a relationship breakdown, harassment, a medical condition or another serious situation. Or it may be because you have a 'community connection' to a certain area through your parents, work or education for example.
Make sure you consider other types of housing options to find a home faster.
