What sets us apart

Important update on Homes for Reading Ltd. – February 2024

Following a review of the company’s financial situation, Reading Borough Council is considering whether the company will continue as a separate entity.

Homes for Reading stopped buying new properties in 2019 following a number of changes to the financial context in which the company operates. While the company has continued to provide housing management services to current tenants since that time, these arrangements will need to be brought to an end if a decision is made that the company will cease trading.

All Homes for Reading tenants are now being consulted on the course of action the Council should follow. If a decision is taken to wind up the company, tenants will be allowed to remain in their homes until at least the end of their current tenancy agreement. They will also be provided with support and assistance in finding new accommodation.

At Homes for Reading, we care about our properties, our customers, and our service. We work hard to make a difference at all levels and we pride ourselves on our four pillars of value:


Offering a customer service that provides you with peace of mind that we are always there to look after you and your home.


As a professional landlord with sound financial backing, we are here for the long-term, which means you can put down roots and stay as long as you want.


As a professional landlord, we offer well maintained homes with an expert management and repairs service on hand 24 hours a day should you need it.


We are an ethical and honest organisation, with a corporate Board to ensure we are delivering to our customers.

Our happy customers

We are so pleased with the service we received from the Homes for Reading team. From start to finish they were professional and efficient, and made the very stressful process of moving house so much easier!

Mr B. Tilehurst

Being a tenant of Homes for Reading is wonderful. When my sink started leaking their workman fixed the problem quickly and avoided damaging my possessions.

Sarah Williams

I am so happy with my home! The whole process went smoothly and the team were so helpful.

Miss M Caversham

Homes for Reading were a godsend when no other agency would consider me as I was in receipt of Housing Benefit.
