Hamwic Housing Co-operative Limited remit is ‘Single adults in housing need with no live-in dependents’, and is unable to provide supported housing.
BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHETHER TO COMMIT TO A HOUSING CO-OPERATIVE
* The process to membership takes around 3 months, and Hamwic Housing Co-operative is under no obligation to accept any applicant to membership.
* Only members can be housed. Consequently, if a member loses their membership they lose their housing.
* Tenancies are contractual tenancies, meaning a member has contractual obligations to help run the society on a voluntary basis.
