Welcome to My Home Options

Bedford's My Home Options Choice Based Lettings (CBL) scheme allows you to find available social housing in the Borough, whether this is social or affordable rent housing. The current demand for housing against the shortage of supply means you may not qualify for social housing, or you may have to wait a considerable time to get a property.

Accommodation in the private sector is easier and quicker to obtain than social housing and there is much more choice available. Bedford Borough Council's Housing Options Service may be able to assist you with meeting upfront costs to secure a private rented property. This is subject to both a thorough assessment of your needs and eligibility.
