City expands choice based letting

Wednesday, 15th November, 2017 5:54pm

Cork City Council has extended its choice based letting (CBL) scheme to include properties available for letting from approved housing bodies (AHB).

A new facility on the website will outline to the prospective tenant who the property manager is and a link to the relevant AHB website is also available.

CBL is the main way that Cork City Council allocates its social housing properties. Cork City Council reminds applicants that they need to log into every week to see what properties are available to let and to express their interest online.

The number of properties advertised varies from week to week. Some weeks, there may not be any properties advertised and the following week there may be a number of properties. AHBs (also called housing associations or voluntary housing associations) are independent, not-for-profit organisations. AHBs provide housing in response to a range of different needs including families on low incomes, households with special needs, such as older persons, people with disabilities and homeless persons.

They work in partnership with local authorities.

Approved housing bodies also include housing co-operatives, which are housing organisations controlled by their members/tenants who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions.

Examples of AHBs are An Tuath, Co-operative Housing, Cluid and Respond.
