Applying for housing

We receive a lot of email enquiries from people requesting to be housed with us and understand that looking for somewhere to live can be a very stressful time. 

We're a registered provider of social housing and only take nominations from the local authorities in which we operate. If you wish to be housed with us (or any other social landlord) we strongly recommend you register with your local authority. We can't guarantee though that you will be housed either with us or another social landlord as waiting list are often very long.

A few of our client co-ops do take direct applications. However, your first step is to sign up with your local authority as its often a requirement for applicants to  already be on the housing register.

If you're a single person, you may be eligible for a property at Deptford Housing Co-op where there are 8 shared houses of 10 rooms each. These rooms are rented out individually and are available to single occupants only. You can find more information and an application form here

Waiting times for a home in one of our other client co-ops can often be several years long and almost all will require that you live and/or work in the Borough in which they're based. As co-ops are member-run, to be eligible you'll need to demonstrate that you're willing to dedicate time to assist in the running of the co-op as well as pass an interview.

As you're required to have a local connection we recommend that you read through our ‘client co-ops’ pages to see if there is a co-op local to you. You should be aware that many of the co-ops are small and have a very low turnover of empty homes  and as such it may be extremely unlikely that you will be housed through a direct application to a co-op.


If you would still like to apply to be housed in a co-op with whom you have a local connection, please email your contact details, details of why you’re eligible and of all your household members to and a member of the team will get back in touch.
