The application process

Before you can be considered for housing with any of the partner organisations you must register an account and complete an online application form. Only then will you be added to the common housing register. You will also need to complete this form if you are interested in low cost homeownership and intermediate renting.

Your wait to be re-housed is determined by a number of factors including the choices you make on your housing application form.  The more restrictive you are in terms of landlord, location and property type, the more likely it is you will have to wait to be rehoused. 


Who can apply?

You may apply for housing providing that you are 16 or over and are not registered on someone else’s application. 

You may be refused entry onto the common housing register if you:

  • are subject to immigration control

  • are not classed as being habitually resident in the United Kingdom

  • are considered to be guilty of unacceptable behaviour serious enough to make you unsuitable to be a tenant

If you are considered not eligible for housing we will write to you to explain the reason(s) and inform you of your right to request a review of the decision.

If your circumstances change which means you become eligible, you will need to submit a new application.
