Apply For Social Housing

*Coronavirus update*

We are not holding housing surgeries at the current time due to offices being temporarily closed. However, we can offer assistance with applications over the phone for those who do not have online access or anybody to help them. You will still be required to provide us with document proofs such as ID, proof of address etc.

Apply for Social Housing

Social housing in East Lindsey consists of homes owned and managed by Social Housing Providers (Housing Associations). There are no council owned properties in East Lindsey.

Following the Alliance between East Lindsey District Council and Boston Borough Council, we have developed a joint Housing Register system and Housing Allocations policy for both authorities. This means there is only one online application to complete for one or both areas. Qualification and banding for each authority may differ dependent upon the applicant's local connection.

You can view the updated joint BBC ELDC Housing Allocation Scheme 2021 to check qualification criteria.

You can Apply Here to be considered for inclusion on the housing register .   

There are no set 'bidding cycle' days that properties will be advertised. Adverts will be added any day Monday to Friday as and when they come up and will run for a minimum of four days. Therefore we would advise all applicants to check the system twice a week to ensure you do not miss out on properties advertised.

Applicants will not be able to start bidding for properties until all document proofs have been received within 28 days of the application being made and then verified by the housing register team. 

If you are a current Housing Association or Council tenant looking to move property or area, you may wish to look into a mutual exchange through websites such as HomeSwapper but you should speak to your housing provider for advice first.

Platform Housing Group may have some properties available in different areas where you can apply for them direct.

Please note the Housing Register team are only available for telephone queries Monday to Friday 9am-12pm.
