Housing association - information and advice

Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council is no longer a social landlord and does not own any council houses, flats or sheltered housing complexes.

On 10th December 2007, following formal approval from the Welsh Assembly Government, the Council transferred all of its housing stock to RCT Homes. RCT Homes is a Community Mutual Housing Organisation that has been established specifically to manage the Council’s transferred housing stock.

If you were a Council tenant in Rhondda Cynon Taf at the time of transfer, you autmotically became a RCT Homes tenant.

The Council still has a responsibility to ensure that the needs of residents are met through housing services provided locally (for further information on the Strategic Housing Function please see Housing Strategies| section).

The Council also has a duty to help people who are Homeless or threatened with Homelessness. If you are Homeless or threatened with Homelessness please contact:
