Important information

Rent payment increases: We are increasing our rent charges from April 1 this year – the first time they have risen in four years. Find out more info here: https://www.bernicia.com/rent-payment-increases/



We’re dedicated to helping the people of the North East by seeing the bigger picture, but focusing on the little things that can mean the world.

We give people a place they can call home by providing quality, affordable homes to rent or buy, as well as a range of exceptional services. By helping one person at a time, we can enhance communities and ultimately, help transform our region.

Stay warm and stay well this winter with our hints, tips and advice to help keep you and your home safe and warm during the cold weather.
