Am I eligible to join the Housing Register?

What the Council can do

Points will be awarded to your application based on your current housing needs. These points are determined by the Council’s Allocations Policy (PDF), which also determines the size of the property you are eligible for.

If you have a medical condition you may be awarded additional points.

If you have a change of circumstances, you must keep the Council informed, as this could affect your eligibility for housing and delay your application if you do not let the Council know.

Every year you will receive a reminder to log into your HomeOption account to renew your application. You must complete this annual review if you wish to remain on the Housing Register. If you do not log in and renew your registration it may be cancelled.
