Make sure you are tenancy ready

Published: Monday 14 February 2022

Whether you are on our housing register or looking for private rented accommodation, you need to make sure you are ready to manage your rent, bills and money, once you move in.

Passport to Housing is a free and confidential service Curo offers to people bidding for a new home on Homesearch.  It’s designed to help people prepare for a successful tenancy and plan for the expense of moving. 

Passport to Housing changes lives by making sure housing applicants are ready to:

  • take on a tenancy
  • manage their finances with confidence
  • plan their moving costs and rent-in-advance payments
  • maximise their potential income
  • know what to do if things go wrong or change in future

… to give you the best chance of a successful tenancy.

If you bid for a Curo property and are invited to an interview you will be asked questions about your suitability for the property.  This is known as the Curo Success Plan
