On 1 October 2016, the management of the Council’s housing stock was transferred back to Ashfield District Council.
Housing services are now directly managed by Ashfield Homes Service Directorate, Ashfield District Council.
Anything on this website that reads Ashfield Homes Limited should now be considered as Ashfield Homes Service Directorate.
Ashfield Homes Ltd works under contract from the council and manages the Housing Register, allocates and arranges tenancies, carries out repairs and gives advice on subjects like rent payments and moving house. Many of these services are available online. Visit Ashfield Homes Limited if you would like to apply to go on the Housing Register or require information on the Homes Exchange Scheme.
If you are an existing tenant of Ashfield Homes, housing association or another council, and you wish to move, you may be able to exchange homes with another tenant, even if they are not with the same landlord as you under the Homeswapper Scheme. Go to Homeswapper Home Scheme to find out more.
