Housing associations are private, non-profit making organisations. They are sometimes referred to as Registered Social Landlords. They work closely with the council to offer low-cost housing to local people who are on a low income, or who need extra support.

Sometimes, they will advertise properties available to buy or rent on the Denbighshire Housing website (external website).
Affordable housing schemes
If you are finding it difficult to buy or rent accommodation, there are affordable home ownership and rental schemes available that can help.
With this scheme you would buy an amount of equity in a property through a mortgage, with the remaining amount held by a housing association. When the property is sold, the housing association would receive their share of the value in the property.
Shared ownership allows you to buy a share of your home, usually around 50% and pay rent to a housing association on the remaining share.
This scheme offers the opportunity to rent a property at Local Housing Allowance rates which is less than the rent you would expect to pay for a similar home in a similar area from a private landlord.
