If you are going to become a tenant of Stoke on Trent Housing Society we want to make sure that between us we do whatever we can to build a great relationship. We want to provide you with a great home that you can afford and manage and we want you to come and talk to us when you need to.

We’ve set out some expectations – if you are happy with them then we’re happy to do our best to help you find a tenancy with us. If you aren’t then it’s probably best that you consider an alternative landlord/s.
