How to apply
Metropolitan is an independent not-for-profit Housing association that provide low-cost ‘social housing’ for people in housing need. Our aim is to provide affordable housing to those who really need it. We provide a wide range of housing options for customers across the East Midlands, Cambridgeshire and London.
Our properties are available to rent through Choice Based Letting Schemes (CBL) or via your Local Authority. This means that in order to apply for one of our properties you must first register with your local CBL scheme or Local Authority. Visit Choice Based Lettings Explained for more information about how to apply for a Metropolitan property in your area.
There are a small number of available properties listed on our website. For these properties, you are able to contact us directly to arrange a viewing.
There are many reasons why you may be looking for specialist housing. Perhaps your current home is now too big or expensive to run. Or maybe your health isn’t quite what it was and you are looking for a little more peace of mind. Retirement housing offers the best of both worlds – the independence of living in your own bungalow, flat or studio, but with an alarm system if you need it and the security of knowing that 24 hour support is only one call away.
Each of our homes and schemes are unique, offering a range of different options to best suit you. Many of our schemes have 24 hour assistance from scheme managers or intercom alarm systems. Most of our unfurnished accommodation has communal facilities like social rooms and laundry rooms. Some schemes allow pets, and have rooms where guests can stay.
Many of our sheltered schemes offer a calendar of social activities like bingo, fitness sessions and coffee mornings. Many properties have communal gardens and some have private gardens, and the vast majority of our accommodation has excellent transport with local shops nearby.
