Who can apply
Anyone who is 16 years of age or over can apply for housing by registering an account on this website and completing an online social housing application.
If you have displayed unacceptable housing related behaviour, for example having rent arrears or have committed anti-social behaviour, this may affect your chances of being rehoused. We will also assess your eligibility for rehousing as there are legal restrictions on who we can allocate a property to, for example if you do not have recourse to public funds or if you are an EEA national and do not meet certain criteria. If we are unable to rehouse you due to this we will write to you explaining the reasons for our decision.
