Moving home


You can now bid online for Ealing housing - register or transfer through Locata

Six London boroughs - Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon and Hounslow - have joined forces to enable you to move or find a new home. Together with 12 housing associations we strive to increase the options for people in council and housing association homes.

Locata is a company set up to work with all the partners and matches people to homes. It uses a choice-based lettings scheme which means it will not be the council or housing association who find and allocate you a home.

Instead, you will become a member of Locata and actively search for a home yourself. Available homes are advertised in LocataHOME, a free magazine, which can be found at reception offices, supermarkets and all public libraries across the six boroughs. It can also be posted to you directly for a small subscription fee or you can visit the Locata HOME website. To apply for this scheme you need to fill in a transfer application form, available from your local reception office.
