Applying for a council home

How to apply

After considering the other options available, if you still wish to apply to go onto the council's housing register you will need to complete an online housing register form via Locata.

We encourage all housing register applicants to apply online, as this is the quickest method. A simple online application form guides you through the process and provides information on your likely priority band. If you are unable to apply online yourself, you may want to ask a member of your family to help you do this.

If you need help in applying, or for any reason need a paper application form, please contact the housing choice and options team on (020) 8825 8800 or 7274. 

If you are eligible you will be given a level of priority based on your circumstances and housing needs. You will also be given an online registration number which should be quoted whenever you make an enquiry about your application.
