Who can join MyMove?

When you join MyMove you will only get access to ready to let and home ownership products such as rent to buy or shared ownership with First Choice Homes Oldham.

From 30 September to apply for a home you will need to submit an application to the Council's Housing Register via Oldham Council's Housing Options service.

Once your application has been assessed and accepted onto the Council’s Housing Register, you will be able to view and bid on all available properties available across the borough.

In addition to our homes, Housing Options also includes available properties with other local housing associations including: The Guinness Partnership, Jigsaw Homes, Places for People, Onward, Regenda, ForHousing, Housing21, The Riverside Group, Anchor, Hanover and Great Places.

If you already have a MyMove Oldham account, you will still be able to access some of our ready-to-let homes from 30 September. These homes will have been initially advertised via the Council’s Housing Options property advert and if they were not successfully let from that advert will be displayed on the MyMove Oldham site and will be available on a first come first served basis.


To join MyMove you must be over 16 and eligible for social housing.

Most UK residents who are not subject to immigration control are eligible, more information about this can be found on Shelter’s website.
