How to apply?
You can register with a local authority if you have a priority need to move.
Once you’ve registered with a borough, you’ll be able to ‘bid’ on the homes you’re eligible for. Some boroughs may offer a waiting list rather than a bidding system.
You’ll be contacted when a suitable property is available. You’ll be prioritised based on your housing needs.
To register with the local authorities you must have:
- A local connection who has lived in the area usually for a minimum of two to five years (depending on the local authority area you live in)
- A priority need to move, for example if you’re underoccupying or overcrowded.
How to apply? Find your local authority and look to complete a housing application form.
