What is the Jersey Homes Trust?
The Jersey Homes Trust (JHT) was set up in 1995 as a not-for-profit organisation to provide social rented housing for Island residents in need. The JHT is now the second largest private-sector residential landlord in Jersey.

Is the JHT part of the States?
No.

Who runs the JHT?
The JHT is run by a board of eight Trustees who are active, professional people.

How many properties does the Trust own?
The Trust has developed and acquired over 768 homes spread over 22 developments. Most of these are in the town area but there are several in outlying parishes. They range from one-bedroomed flats to five-bedroomed houses.

How expensive is the rent?
Although the JHT is a private sector landlord, our rents are based on a capping system introduced by the States. This ensures that the Trust's rentals are affordable and match the rentals charged by other providers of social rented housing for equivalent properties.

How do I apply for a JHT home?
A Jersey resident wishing to apply for social rented housing will be assessed through the Affordable Housing Gateway, which is a single point of access for all social housing in the Island. All social housing providers allocate their homes to those applicants who have been assessed and qualify through the Gateway. For further information go here.
