We work with other housing providers in the area to run a choice based lettings scheme, giving you a wider selection of homes to rent.

We let properties in Hertfordshire under this scheme through Herts Choice Homes and in Buckinghamshire with Bucks Home Choice.

They cover these home authority areas:

Home Connections

  • Three Rivers District Council
  • Watford Borough Council
  • Central Bedfordshire Council

Herts Choice Homes

  • Hertsmere Borough Council
  • Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council
  • St Albans City and District Council

Bucks Home Choice

  • Aylesbury Vale District Council
  • Chiltern District Council
  • South Bucks District Council
  • Wycombe District Council
  • Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust.

To bid successfully for a Thrive Homes property under the choice based lettings scheme you will need to remedy any breach of tenancy, cleared any outstanding debts with Thrive, and then have had a clear rent account for a minimum of 12 weeks.

To register and search for any available properties you must also be placed on the Housing Register of your district council. You can do this through the websites of Herts Choice Homes or Bucks Home Choice, depending which area is suitable for you.

This applies to all applicants, including current tenants of Thrive Homes or another Registered Social Landlord who want to transfer to another property.

You can also apply for the Housing Register by contacting your local council. Their details can be found HERE.
