You will need to complete a housing options assessment prior to joining the housing register. It will only take a few minutes to complete the small number of questions. There are other housing options that may make it easier and quicker for you to find a home, move home or get help to stay in your current home. Consider these options before applying to join the housing register.
The link to the housing register will be displayed along with other housing options available, information and advice.
Before you fill in the form, take a moment to consider if you are ready to be a tenant:
If you're applying for your first tenancy or if you've had rent arrears or other problems in a past tenancy you'll need to take our online 'Are you ready' course before your application is made live and you can start bidding. Find out more on our Are you ready page.
If you already have a tenancy with a registered social landlord, you will not need to take the course - please send us copy or a photo of your tenancy agreement using our online form.
Once we have received your application, and your 'Are you Ready' certificate, we will check your application and give you a banding.
We will then let you know your banding, registration date and application number. You will also be told the property types that you are eligible to bid on based on your family size and needs. We aim to do this in seven days and you can start bidding.
If you have a medical condition that may affect your re-housing needs - please read our medical assessments page.
