Who can use the service (make bids)?
Anyone who has been accepted onto Tower Hamlets Common Housing Register is able to use the service. To apply to join the Housing Register you must be over 18 years of age.
You will need to complete an application form, which can be obtained from your local housing office or downloaded from this website. The application form enables you to apply for a Council or Housing Association rented home. For details on how to contact a Partner, please see the Contact us section.
Before you are offered a property you will be asked to provide further documents to support your application. We will tell you what documents to provide and when to provide them.
All documents provided must be originals, up to date and valid.
If you do not fill in the application form properly it will be returned to you and will delay your application.
If you do not provide us with the documents required your application may be accepted onto the housing register but will not be awarded any priority. Once the documents are received your application will be assessed and placed in the appropriate band from the date the documents were received. Please read How priority for housing is decided in the Allocations Scheme document for details about the banding scheme.
Who cannot use the service?
You cannot use this service if you have not completed an application form and been accepted onto the housing register.
