Housing Options nationwide and much, much more

Locata has built and maintains allocations, lettings and homelessness systems for housing partnerships across the country. We work with 132 local authorities and more than two hundred housing bodies.

Most of our customers operate choice based lettings schemes – many on a sub-regional basis. However, we also provide property pools and stand-alone homelessness systems.

Our housing partners use a variety of public facing websites managed by Locata that allows their customers access to housing options and bidding services.
