Important information about applying for a council home
There is a very high demand for Council homes in Hull and we cannot offer a home to everyone who approaches us, demand for council homes far outweighs the number of homes becoming available.
The housing list is not a waiting list
Homes are offered to those in the highest need, not those who have been on the list or who have been bidding for properties the longest.
Lots of people apply because they would like a certain type of property but then find they are not eligible for them under our Allocations Policy, for example houses. Houses will not be offered to -
- single people
- couples or those whose children stay with them only some of the time
Houses will only be offered to people with children aged 0 to 17 years living with them as their main home.
If you want a particular type of property, check if you are eligible for it before you apply to our list.
A large number of people bid for each home that becomes available
Homes that become available have between 100 and 300 people bidding for each one that we advertise and most of the people who bid are in housing need.
Even if you are in housing need we cannot guarantee housing you
Only some people with the highest housing need will be offered a council home appropriate to their needs.
This means that, unfortunately, even if you are in housing need, there is a very strong chance you will not be made an offer of a council home.
Remember, most people who apply to go on our housing list will not be offered a home.
