Where and when is a homelessness application taken?

Where are homelessness applications taken?

Homeless applications can be taken at any of the Council Offices in Grantham, Stamford, Bourne or Market Deeping.  Please let us know if yo have any difficulty in accessing our Offices and we will try to accommodate your needs.

When are homelessness applications taken?

We will take an application from you when we have reason to believe you are homeless or are likely to become homeless within 28 days. This does not mean you should not approach us until then – you should contact us as soon as possible so we can help you. We will arrange for you to be interviewed by an experienced Housing Options Advisor who will assess whether a formal application should be taken from you.

You should not leave your accommodation, unless you are not safe or the Court has ordered you to do so, without first taking advice.
