Apply to join the housing waiting list

We are unable to provide housing to everyone, and even those who are awarded a high priority may have to wait several years before a suitable property becomes available. Therefore if you haven't already done so please check the qualifying and priority criteria for social housing and waiting times for further information.

An assessment can only begin once you have completed the housing application form. Please do not contact us until you have completed this form in full.

Who can apply

You can apply for social housing in the borough if you are over the age of 18. 

However, under the allocations scheme, people who live outside of the borough and those who have not lived in Wandsworth for the last three years continuously will receive lower priority and are unlikely to receive an offer of accommodation. 

Who should not use this form

If you are homeless or you are at risk of becoming homeless, you should make a homelessness application with us to discuss your options, instead of completing this form.

What happens next

Once completed you will receive an acknowledgement notification advising you your application will be forwarded to one of the team for assessment. See the application process for more information.
