Waiting times

Housing associations typically let to homes housing register applicants in the highest priority band and who have been waiting for the longest. 

There are many factors that influence how long it can take for you to find suitable social housing including:

  • how urgent your housing needs are
  • how long you have been waiting
  • what size of property you need
  • what type of property you need
  • where you want to live
