Our Housing Waiting List

A small percentage of our properties are available to let to people from our transfer and direct waiting list. These are available to applicants who meet the criteria of our Lettings Policy without being nominated by a Local Authority. Anyone can apply though you must have a housing need and meet the criteria within our Lettings Policy.

  • However we only have a small number of homes available to let each year. This is because 75% of our empty homes are let to applicants from a Council's waiting list. Even if you are accepted onto our waiting list we cannot advise how long a wait you may have. 

In the first instance, especially if you are threatened with homelessness, you should apply to the local Council. If you are a current social housing tenant you may be able to mutual exchange. Click here for more information about mutual exchanges.

For certain areas we have an OPEN housing waiting list.  Please see here for details.  For all other areas our housing waiting list is closed.
