Harborough Home Search is a partnership between Harborough District Council and all of the Housing Associations operating in the district.
This site displays all of the rented and shared ownership properties the housing associations currently have available. You will also find details of other housing options such as mutual exchanges within the district.
We aim to give you more choice in deciding where you want to live in the District. Housing Association properties that are available for rent will be advertised every week online and in our Housing Options Booklet.
You can choose which properties you are interested in and show your interest by bidding for a property. You may only bid for a property if your application has been accepted onto our housing register. Don't worry about the word 'bid' this does not involve money it just means you are telling us that you are interested in a particular property and want to be considered for it.
You can place a 'bid' on this website, or by telephone.
To place a bid by telephone you will need to have your unique Harborough Home Search reference number, your memorable date password and the property reference number that you want to bid for. The number to call when placing a bid is 0300 011 0129.

What's the news?
Harborough District Council will be leaving the Leicestershire Choice based lettings partnership at the end of March 2018, and will be introducing a new choice based lettings scheme for the Harborough District. Oadby & Wigston Borough Council and Blaby District Council have already left the partnership and have their own individual schemes in operation (see their new websites www.oadbywigstonhomes.org and https://blabyhomes.org).
To facilitate this change, we (Harborough District Council) have recently procured a new integrated Housing system that will replace the existing Housing Register and Choice Based Lettings website. The new system is scheduled to go live in April 2018.
Some changes to the Council's existing Allocations and Lettings Policy were approved by Council Members on the 4th December, but these will not take effect until April 2018 when the new choice based lettings scheme is introduced. Information regarding these changes is published on the Allocations Policy page and there will be communication with existing applicants notifying them of the changes that have been approved and when they will take effect.
