Applying for a council house
City of Lincoln Council has joined North Kesteven District Council,West Lindsey District Council and Acis Group Limited to provide a joint choice based lettings scheme to help you find a suitable home in the area.
Choice based lettings (CBL) give you more choice in the area that you move to and the type of property that you live in. Given the huge demand for social housing across central Lincolnshire properties are offered to families or individuals with the greatest housing need first. We match family size to property size to ensure everyone is given an appropriate and affordable property for their needs.
If you want to apply for housing (Council and Housing Association owned) in Lincoln, North Kesteven or West Lindsey you will need to register with Lincs Homefinder.
You can do this by going to the website www.LincsHomefinder.co.uk or by contacting the authority where you currently live.
If you don’t already live in Lincoln, North Kesteven or West Lindsey then you need to contact the authority where you wish to move to.
For more information about the application process and how the scheme works after you have joined the scheme visit the website www.LincsHomefinder.co.uk.
