WELCOME MESSAGE

Welcome to Swansea Housing Association

We are a non-profit making organisation registered with the National Assembly for Wales.
We provide homes in the Swansea and Neath Port Talbot areas for a wide variety of people of different age groups, many with different needs and accommodation preferences.
We are managed by an unpaid voluntary Board of Management. Paid staff led by the Chief Executive carry out the day to day work of the Association.
The Association is registered with the Registrar of Friendly Societies as an Industrial and Provident Society with charitable rules.
We are committed to developing and promoting environmentally friendly methods in all aspects of our business.
Our aim is to encourage staff, tenants, contractors and working partners to use, replace and dispose of resources in the best way. We hope that you can join us in this commitment so that we can work together to ‘save the planet’.
Vast amounts of energy are used to mine and transport raw materials so the best thing to do is to use less.

There are, therefore, three main objectives:

The Best Usage

The more economical we are with, and the less we use of essential natural materials, the less waste and pollution we will cause.

The Best Replacement

Only buy what you need, and look for durable goods that are produced in an environmentally-friendly way.

The Best Disposal

Try to reuse and recycle waste where possible, and dispose of all other waste in a safe way.

Your rights

If you have a joint tenancy with your partner, friend, or relative, you both have the full rights and responsibilities as set out in your tenancy agreement.
If you wish to create a joint tenancy with a partner, friend or relative, we will only grant permission where:

  • you can clearly show that the person you wish to hold the joint tenancy with has been been resident with you in our property for 12 months;
  • you are a sole tenant who has married and you wish to make your partner, a joint tenant.
  • that no overcrowding will occur as a result of the creation of the joint tenancy

right to buy

The Right to Buy scheme helps eligible council and housing association tenants in England to buy their home with a discount of up to £112,300 (£84,200 outside London). use our website to find out if you are eligible for the scheme. depending on your circumstances it may be best to speak with a specialist mortgage broker, we have partnered with Get Me My Mortgage who specialise in securing mortgages for customers who may not fit into the normal criteria of a high street bank
