Renting a Home in Tameside
New Charter Housing Trust
In March 2000, Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council transferred all of its homes to a new local housing company, New Charter Housing Trust to ensure that these homes would be of a decent standard and that the families living in them would receive high quality services.
You can also apply to rent a home from a range of Housing Associations with properties in Tameside.
Pinpoint is a partnership between the 10 Greater Manchester Local Authorities and 13 Housing Associations.
Customers register just once with their local authority and this registration enables access to Pinpoint properties. There will still be criteria for each property that must be met before an expression can be taken.
The Tameside Housing Advice Service can help you with your housing problems and give you information on a wide range of issues.
