Apply for a home -
new customer

We own and manage homes across the country - from Cornwall to Yorkshire, from Lancashire to the South Coast.

We do not have a housing waiting list to apply to Guinness directly, and we advertise the majority of our homes through the local council. If you wish to apply for a Guinness home, you will need to contact your local council and submit your application with them. There is an eligibility criteria to apply for social/affordable housing, which your local council will be able to discuss with you.

To find your local council, take a look at the government website.
