How to apply for Affordable Housing
To apply for most of our affordable housing, you need to be registered with your local council, who will assess your housing need. They may house you, give you a banding and bidding number for a waiting list, or advise you of alternative options. Go to Gov.uk to find out more information. You may also be able to apply to us direct.
We offer three main types of affordable housing:
Sheltered Schemes offer secure independent living to over 55s. These properties make up the majority of our affordable housing.
Supported housing provides self-contained flats for people with mental health support needs or drug and alcohol dependency. These are in limited supply.
Our general needs housing is for families, couples and single people who do not need additional support. These are in limited supply.
We now offer an alternative solution – 55 London, which is available to those in work or on housing benefit who may not benefit from a council housing / our own waiting list.
Applying for our Affordable housing – C&C properties
To apply for housing directly with us you will need to:
- Complete and return an application form.
- Submit a copy of document(s) which show you have a regular income.
- Submit a copy of ID document(s) which prove you have a right to rent in the UK. If you are submitting a residence permit, please note that we can only accept residence cards which show an Indefinite or Unlimited Leave to remain.
How long is the waiting list?
We receive a lot of applications so waiting lists can be long. We advise applying to as many other places as possible in order to increase your chances of being housed.
All applicants will join a waiting list. This will be determined by your banding or points accrued, which will then determine where you are on the list.
55 London is a new way of finding an affordable home and may be a better alternative for those who would not benefit from a council waiting list.
