Apply for council housing

To apply for council, social or sheltered housing you need to be on the Housing Register.

Once you are on the Housing Register you can search for homes on Waverley Homechoice.

Please note there are around 1,700 applicants on the Housing Register but only around 300 council homes become available each year. This means that you could face a very long wait before being successful in receiving an offer of accommodation, and unfortunately some people may never receive an offer.

Joining the Housing Register

To join the Housing Register you will need to complete a pre-registration form. If you meet the pre-registration criteria you will be asked to complete the more detailed application form that will be sent to you.

If you are already a council or Housing Association tenant in Waverley and want to move to another property, you also need to join the Housing Register.

You can download and print the pre-registration form.

For further details please visit the Waverley Homechoice website.

Privacy notice

The Privacy notice for Housing Options, Homelessness and the Housing Register explains what happens to the personal information you provide in the applications forms.
