If you wish to move to home will need to complete a Durham Key Options application form to register your details. We will contact you if any further information is required from you and notify you as soon as your application has been processed, usually within 10 working days.

User Guides are available from the Durham Key Options website to explain the process step by step, however if you need any help to apply, please contact us.

Our available homes are advertised weekly on our website livin.co.uk and at www.durhamkeyoptions.co.uk.

Home Swap

If you are interested in exchanging homes with another social housing tenant, please visit our HomeSwap section of the main livin website for further information. 

Maintenance of your own fixtures and fittings

To keep your home in a reasonable condition you will need to carry out some regular maintenance work.

Activities such as window cleaning, sweeping and weeding garden paths, keeping drainage grates clear of debris, removing rubbish and gardening not only keep your home clean but can also help to keep your home safe for you and your family.

Keeping your house warm can help prevent pipes from freezing and bursting in the winter. Operating extractor fans and opening windows can also reduce the occurrence of condensation.
