Housing association or council owned properties are an alternative to buying your own home or renting privately.
Housing Associations are separate from councils, but often work closely with them to offer flats and houses. For more information on Housing Associations see the GOV.UK website or a list of Housing Associations in Suffolk
For more general information on council housing, how to apply for it, rent and rent arrears, repairs and whether you are eligible, see the Council housing page on the GOV.UK website.
