Prioritising Applications

Homesearch uses a grouping scheme to prioritise applications.

Current Homesearch policy.

All housing applications received for social rented accommodation will be assessed.  Applicants must be eligible to join the register and qualify as set out in the policy.  If an application is accepted it will be placed in one of three groups, A, B, or C. The table below sets out the Grouping scheme and gives examples of those applicants who would be eligible to be placed in each group.
