How will my application be assessed?

All applicants applying for housing regardless of any individual circumstances have a right to be admitted to the housing list and we aim to respond to your application within 14 days of receipt.  We aim to give reasonable preference to those households in housing need and when assessing applications priority will be given to those households who are experiencing some or all of the following circumstances:

  • Overcrowded properties
  • Occupying properties lacking basic amenities
  • Homelessness
  • Unsatisfactory housing conditions (which can include medical as well as some social need)

Points will be allocated in accordance with Association policy to reflect the assessed housing need. You can find a copy of our Allocations Policy at
