Spire View Housing Association has been successful in gaining a ten year extension on the exemption of right to buy.

It also means that we can continue to provide good quality, affordable housing to those most in need.
This extension does not apply to the following:
If you wish to discuss this in any more detail, please contact Arlene or Fiona at the office.
It is extremely important to the Association that we listen to our tenants and applicants to enable us to provide the best possible service that we can, particularly when it comes to letting our properties. To assist in this process, we carry out a review of our Allocation Policy every three years and through consultation with our tenants and applicants, make any relevant changes which would improve our existing policy.
We have recently carried out a thorough review of our Allocation Policy. Due to the great success of our current policy which tenants and applicants are happy with, we only had to make minor changes. A copy of the revised policy is available on this site under “Documents” or to download here. The next Allocation Review will be in 2014.
Problems Paying Your Rent?
If you have problems paying your rent, please contact your Housing Officer at the office immediately. Staff are committed to giving help and advice and understand that individual circumstances can change. Please do not ignore this problem as the debt will increase and, ultimately, you could lose your home.
