You can apply for many of our homes on different websites and through local authorities.

In some areas this is via a waiting list that you need to register for. The other option is through a local choice based lettings partnership which lets you apply for the homes you’re interested in rather than going on a waiting list. Where possible, we advertise our homes through these lettings partnerships where you can see properties from lots of landlords all in one place.

In some areas, a number of properties are also given to people referred by the local authority. This is called a local authority nomination.

How do I apply for a home?

Search for the area that you want to live in below and follow the instructions for the relevant scheme in that area. The process does involve filling in some forms online so please be ready for that.

 

We advertise many of our properties for your area through Home Choice Lincs. Anyone who has been accepted onto the Home Choice Lincs Housing Register is able to use the service. To apply to join the Housing Register you must be age 16 or over. You will need to complete an online application form, via this website. The application form enables you to apply for a Housing Association rented home. Along with your application form you will be asked to provide the following documents when you are successful in bidding for a property:
  • Proof of identity for all household members (e.g. passports, birth certificates)
  • Proof of current address (e.g. recent gas or electricity bill)
  • Evidence of your right to reside in the UK if you are not a British Citizen (e.g. passport and other relevant documents from the Home Office)
Before you are offered a property you may be asked to provide further documents to support your application. We will tell you what documents to provide and when to provide them. The website is packed with useful information to help you find you a suitable home. You can use this website to:
  • Search  for available properties
  • Apply for a property
  • View results of previous lettings
Properties are advertised each week. They are advertised in the following ways:
  •  Via the Properties and recent lets search panel on this website.
  • In a newsletter available from the Partners’ Housing Offices and the Councils’ Local Links and Customer Access Points
  • Other locations may be added in the future.
The adverts tell you the landlord, location, size, rent and other features of the property to help you decide which properties are right for you. All bids received will be put in priority order to produce a list of eligible applicants for each property advertised. The landlord of the property will carry out any outstanding eligibility checks, (e.g. rent checks, household circumstance checks). If your name is at the top of the priority list you will normally be invited to view the property unless there are reasons why we are unable to do this, for example, you have rent arrears or action is being taken against you for breaching a tenancy condition. If we are unable to offer the property to the applicant at the top of the list we will move to the next applicant and so on.
