Join the housing register
If you are interested in applying for affordable housing you must join the Property Pool Plus Housing Register.
Housing Associations are required to make at least half of their empty properties available to the council to offer to suitable applicants from the Propertypool Plus Register.
When a property is available the Housing Associations will advertise the property on the Property Pool Plus website and if you are on the register you will be able to consider the properties that are available and make a bid. What you are allowed to bid for is made in accordance with the Sub Regional Allocation Policy.
How to join
Go to the Property Pool Plus website and complete the online application form.
If you can't access the online form, you can request a paper application form from one of the participating landlords.
If you have health issues that are directly affected by your current housing you may also need to complete a Health and Welfare form to support your application which will be sent to you by the landlord who will manage your application.
