For those of you not following our Facebook page (and you should, as we post a lot of helpful information on there), we’re currently running the #BeforeYouApply campaign, giving applicants tips for what they need to be prepared for before they apply for a new home through our Digital Lettings Service, These Homes.

If you’re considering a transfer, for example if you need a larger or smaller home, or you need to move to a ground floor property, our tenants can be eligible for additional priority over and above the usual Gold/Silver/Bronze categories.  We do this because if an available property goes to an existing tenant, it frees up their property for someone else – meeting the housing needs of two households instead of just one.

The good news is that if you qualify for any These Homes Priority Passes and you’re already a Platinum Key Tenant, then all we need to do is carry out a home inspection and if all is well, you’ll qualify for a Gold Plus Transfer Pass right away.  Even if you’re not Platinum yet, you may still be able to qualify for the Gold Plus Transfer Pass, as long as you have a clear rent account and have no tenancy breaches.

For more information on qualifying for a Priority Pass, visit the Services section of elha.com, and you can find information on becoming a Platinum Key Tenant in your My Home account.  And don’t forget to follow our Facebook page for more tips on how to prepare #BeforeYouApply.
