Applying for a home or garage with Your Homes Newcastle is easy.  You simply need to register online with Tyne and Wear Homes.

Tyne and Wear Homes is a partnership between housing organisations in the North East and Your Homes Newcastle are members of this partnership. This means that you can apply for homes right across the region, not just in Newcastle. Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside and South Tyneside Councils, and their respective housing organisations, have joined together to bring you an easier way to access the options available to you.

It is a much easier way to find out about your housing options and apply for a home all in one place. Once you have registered with Tyne and Wear Homes, you can manage your application online through the ‘my account’ section of the site.

When you apply for a home through Your Homes Newcastle, our Housing Options Team will support you to understand what homes are available to you. They will make sure any home you choose is affordable and provide support and training to so you can manage your new home successfully.

Every week we publish a property newsletter with the details of the properties that customers can bid for that week through Tyne and Wear Homes. Bidding is open from 12.01am on Thursday until midnight on Monday.

We also publish a newsletter with the details of properties that are available immediately.

Here’s a view of that one:
