There is a high demand for social housing in our district and our Allocations Policy sets out how we give priority in South Kesteven. Once you have submitted your housing application form we will complete an assessment and be in touch with you. This can take up to 30 days.
Please download and complete the application form below.
The Change of Circumstances Form should be used to inform the Housing Register Team of any change in your circumstances that would affect your housing application. For example, if you have changed your name, address and contact details or some has moved into or out of your household.
If your change of circumstances are related to your health, please complete the Medical Self Assessment Form below.
Are you living in overcrowded accommodation?
Whether or not you are 'overcrowded' depends on the size of your home as well as who lives with you. In order for us to decide whether you should be awarded a rehousing priority, we need to assess whether you are "overcrowded" based on a room standard and space standards set out in the Housing Act 1985 part X.
Please download and complete our Overcrowded Accommodation Assessment Form below.
You can find our Housing Allocation Policy and useful documents below.
Please be aware that when you sign up for a social housing tenancy (housing association and council) you may be asked to pay up to four weeks rent in advance. If you cannot pay this, you risk losing your offer of social housing. However there is help available provided you are eligible:
- if you claim housing benefit already you may be able to claim assistance with the first months rent through a Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP). See further information and apply online >>
Alternatively the Lincolnshire Credit Union may be able to assist with an affordable loan. For more information call 01522 845100 or visit the Lincolnshire Credit Union website >>
