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 Homesearch. Each week WDH advertise a range of properties from themselves and other selected housing assoications, including Riverside. They are advertised in weekly cycles from 10.05am on a Wednesday morning for a week. If you see a property you would like to apply for you can bid for up to three properties per week. If you have applied for a WDH property and are successful, we will contact you and arrange for you to view the property. If you are not a Homesearch Member, you need to fill in an application form to join. If you are not registered and wish to join, you can request a form from any Service Access Point, by phoning 0344 9 02 02 02 or complete an online application by clicking Apply Online on the Home page.
