Applying for a council house

We have joined together with North Kesteven District Council, West Lindsey District Council, and the ACIS Group to help residents find a suitable council home within the central Lincolnshire area. 

Properties are offered to families or individuals with the greatest housing need first.

Apply for a council home

If you want to apply for housing in Lincoln, North Kesteven or West Lindsey you will need to either register with Lincs Homefinder online or contact your local authority.
