We advertise all available homes owned or managed by Aspire Housing as well as a small number of properties that belong to other Registered Providers and private landlords.

It will help you when bidding for a new home to choose areas and property types where you are most likely to be successful. We publish information that shows how many property types we have in which areas. It also shows how many became available in the previous year. This will give you a good idea about the best places to bid.
There is no restriction on how many bids you place per week, but if you refuse a suitable property, you may have your application suspended or demoted. We ask that you consider carefully the area and locality where you place your bid, and ensure that you are placing bids in the area that you would accept if you were made an offer.

We have phased out the previous mutual exchange scheme and replaced it with a new service provided by HomeSwapper.
The HomeSwapper service not only holds details of those wishing to carry out an exchange within Newcastle-under-Lyme, but also of those wishing to move to or from other parts of the country.
Aspire Housing has funded this service to enable our customers to join FREE of charge. Registration is quick and easy – all you need to do is register at www.homeswapper.co.uk. Once your registration has been approved by us, you will be able to go on line and view matches.
Please note that the landlord of everyone involved in the exchange must agree to it. Customers must not move until written permission has been obtained and a move date agreed.
