The Housing Register

If you want to look for a council or housing association home in Waltham Forest, you must be on the Housing Register.

To apply, you must be over 18, and usually have lived in the borough for the past five years.  

We will then assess your level of housing need. This ranges from Band 1 (highest priority) to Band 5 (no priority). Find out more about who gets priority for housing by downloading our housing allocation scheme (pdf).
