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.

Changes being implemented from October 2019

The management of the housing register transferred back to this council on 1st October 2019 and changes have been made to who is eligible to join the housing register.  If you do not have a connection to East Lindsey, you might not be eligible.  Further details can be found within the Housing Allocations Policy Icon for pdf Housing Allocations Scheme 2019 [643.98KB].

If you have an urgent housing need and wish to apply to go onto the housing register, you will need to contact our Housing Hub on 01507 613135.  

We will have a new IT system for applicants to use to apply to go onto the housing register, manage their application and bid for properties but this isn't currently available.    Until we 'Go-Live' with our new system we will be letting properties on a direct-let basis only. This means we will not be advertising properties and instead of having to bid, we will contact current applicants who were registered on Homes Direct if they are to be considered for a property.

Once we go-live, you will be able to apply to join the Housing Register here.
