Opening doors in Kelloe and Shotton

20 May 2019 - Latest news

The latest in a series of open days for low-cost homes across County Durham are set to hit the villages of Kelloe and Shotton this month.

believe housing is opening the doors to properties in both villages to highlight the variety of affordable homes in the area.

In Kelloe a two-bedroom house in Ann Avenue will be available for viewing on Wednesday, 22 May; and in Shotton a three-bed house at Bruce Glasier Terrace.

Both events will take place between 11am and 5pm where attendees will have the opportunity to find out about alternative properties in both areas too.

believe housing, formerly known as County Durham Housing Group, has immediately available homes right across County Durham. All are offered with no bond, no admin fees and up to just two-weeks of rent payable in advance. It may be possible to pick up the keys to a new home in just one day.

Head of Housing Operations at believe housing, Simon Bartlett, said: “These open days are designed to help more people understand how a low-cost and secure home from a housing association could really help them. We’ve had great successes and have genuinely helped families into a new home on the same day.

“We’re hoping that we’ll be able to repeat that success during these open days in Kelloe and Shotton.”

More information on both events is available on our events calendar, or by calling 0300 1311 999, or emailing
