Tangram is a registered Housing Co-operative. We have 39 units of accommodation, all in or near Bank Side Street in Harehills, Leeds. They range from studio flats through to four-bedroom family houses.
Our application process can be lengthy, and it may be some time before a vacancy arises. We are probably most suitable for people already in the Leeds area.
We are a Registered Social Landlord regulated by the Homes & Communities Agency. This means that any vacancies are allocated on the basis of housing need.
The Co-op is run by the tenants with support from a part-time worker. All tenants are members of the co-operative and have to be voted in at a General Meeting.
As a tenant, you enjoy the following advantages: cheap rent a centrally heated flat or house, a repairs service, the control of being your own landlord.
In return for this, we expect you to be prepared to volunteer for various tasks. As well as keeping rents down, this is a great way of socialising with the other Co-op members.
