Housing Register

This is a register of all those who have applied for and qualify to be considered for council or housing association properties. Anyone who has been allocated 120 points or more can bid for council and housing association properties using Home Connections. You can contact the Housing Options Team if you have any queries regarding your points allocation or to discuss your options.

New Online Application Form

  • You can now make your application online. To access the online form click on the title link above or on 'Housing application - applying for housing in Islington' under the Related Websites section on the right.

The form will take about 30 minutes to complete and you will need to provide your national insurance number and details of where you have been living for the last 5 years. If you are already registered for housing with Islington you will not be able to complete the on line form. If you are already registered but your circumstances have changed please complete the change of circumstances form.

Who it is for?

Most people with a fixed address in Islington, who have lived within the borough for at least 3 of the last 5 years can join the council housing list. Further details of who can apply are available in the housing allocation scheme. A summary of the equality risks that were considered when setting the allocation policy is also available to download.

How it works

Based on the information you supply in your housing application, we will award you points. If you are awarded over 120 points we will ask you to provide proof of your identity, immigration status and current address. For more information about how we award points, please see our Guide to points.

You can then bid for properties using Home Connections. The time you wait depends on how many points you are allocated. The more points you have the greater your chances of successfully bidding for a property that suits you. Your choice of areas, the size of property you need and the number of suitable properties available will all affect waiting times.

Changes to your circumstances

Once you are on the Register, you must tell us of any changes to your circumstances. You can provide this information using the online change of circumstances form.
