Apply for a home -
new customer

Our housing waiting lists are closed to new customers so you'll need to apply through your local council.

We’ve changed the way we let our homes.

If you wish to apply for a home with us, you’ll need to contact your local council and apply directly with them.

You’re eligible to apply with the council if you:

  • are over 18
  • have the right to live in the UK
  • currently live in the UK, Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland
  • can’t afford to rent a home privately or buy your own home
  • are 16 or 17 years old and have a trustee
  • are from the European Economic Area (EEA) and are working or have the money to be self-sufficient.
