Affordable flats
    We have 44 studio flats at Arlington for people on a low income who have a residential connection to Camden. The flats are allocated by a panel from Arlington and Camden Council.

    We have 35 sub-market studio flats and nine intermediate rent studio flats. The intermediate flats are charged at a slightly higher rent because they include more fixtures and fittings. Three of the larger intermediate units are suitable for couples.

    Each flat includes:

    • built-in cooker
    • ensuite shower and washbasin
    • fitted wardrobe
    • fitted blinds
    • laminate flooring, refrigerator and washing machine (intermediate flats only).

    We can also help with furniture and other appliances and there are bike storage facilities available.

    Rent for the sub-market flats is £156.30 per week (as of April 2016).

    Rent for the intermediate flats is £192.65 per week (as of April 2016).

    Rent includes a service charge for electricity and water. Council tax and TV licence are not included.
