Housing advice

Housing Options Service Trafford (HOST) provides housing and homelessness advice to all residents living within the borough of Trafford.

Homelessness

If you are homeless or are concerned you may become homeless you should contact HOST.

If you become homeless outside of their normal opening hours, contact the Emergency Duty Team by telephoning  0800 218 2000.

Duty to refer

This duty to refer places a statutory responsibility on public authorities in England to notify a local housing authority (LHA) of applicants they think may be homeless, or at risk of becoming homeless within 56 days.

Applying for social housing in Trafford

Trafford Council no longer owns any homes – they are all owned and managed by Trafford Housing Trust (THT). There are a number of othe​r registered housing providers who have different types of properties so it's worth considering them too.

Registered providers

Housing policies & strategies

The way in which our services are run and developed, and the way decisions are made, are guided by a number of housing policy and strategy documents.

Empty properties

In Trafford there are approximately 1000 homes that have been vacant for more than six months. We can potentially help owners to bring an empty property back into housing use by working in partnership with social enterprise schemes and local housing associations (HAs).

Landlord licence

All landlords and property managing agents who let large houses in multiple occupation require a licence from the local authority. How to apply for a licence.

Calling all private landlords

Do you know of anyone who may be a landlord who has properties to rent in the Trafford Borough and is interested in an investment opportunity? If so, Salix Living may be able to assist.

Self build in Trafford

If you are interested in self or custom building a property in Trafford, our Self and custom build register can help you.

The register will give us an indication of the level of demand for self/custom build in the borough and will help us to identify suitable sites for development.
