Council flats for rent

Council flats for rent in The UK

Council flats are a kind of social housing prevalent in the United Kingdom. These kinds of flats are also known as council houses or even local authority houses. They are generally part of council estates. The local councils of the town or the city are in charge of such houses. Council flats initially had the a cottage-type design. However with the modernization of architecture and the growing needs of the tenants, many have now changed to tower blocks. These blocks are usually two or three stories tall. The blocks were mainly occupied by a town's working population. Once a council flat is given to the tenant they are not usually evicted unless they indulge in some misbehavior which causes problems with the other tenants in the council flats. This secured tenancy is another big reason why the council flats are in such high demand.

Council flats are given to people on the basis of the names on the list prepared by the council. The list is kept updated after every individual is given accommodation. This helps to keep track of the number of people who need such help from the local council.
