About Us

In February 2007 South Gloucestershire Council transferred its housing stock to Merlin Housing Society following a large scale voluntary transfer (LSVT).

Although the Council no longer has any housing, we have still have several important housing functions.

We provide a wide range of services to tenants, leaseholders, homeowners, landlords and people who are looking for a home in South Gloucestershire. We also advise and support people to get a home that suits their needs - whether they're renting from private landlords, owning or part-owning.

We offer support, advice and information on housing issues, provide specialist support to homeless people, help people applying for affordable housing, work with our housing association partners to develop new affordable homes, work with landlords and owners to improve existing private housing, administer home improvement grants as well as loans and disability grants.
We also aim to work in partnership with other agencies to tackle anti-social behaviour, nuisance and to reduce racial harassment and domestic violence. If you need help with any of the above please telephone 01454 868005.
