Applying for the housing register
Who can apply
You can apply to join the housing register if you:
- have a right to live in the UK
- are aged 18 years or over
- have a housing need listed in our allocations policy
- have lived in the district for 2 consecutive years
There are some exceptions to these rules. You can find full information on who can apply in our Housing Allocation Scheme (Word doc) [368KB] .
How to apply
You can apply to join the housing register online.
We work with housing associations across the district to make a combined housing register, so you only need to make one application.
We may contact you for extra information after you've sent your application. We can't accept your application until we've received all the information we ask for.
If you need help with your application or can't apply online, contact us.
Change of circumstances
If you're already on the housing register and want to make a change to your details or an application you've made, you can log in to Homemove and choose the 'submit a change of circumstances' option.
