You will be able to apply for properties through Island HomeFinder if you have completed a housing register application. For details on how to apply to join the housing register click Who Can Use the Service.
When you are accepted on to the housing register we will write to tell you:
You must tell us if there are any changes in your circumstances so that we can reassess your application and if necessary make changes to your band and priority date. Failure to do so could result in any bids you have made being invalid.
You will only be eligible for properties that are suitable for the size of your family. The following table tells you how we normally decide on the number of bedrooms that you are eligible for:
|Number of Bedrooms|
|Couple without children|
|Parent(s) with one child|
|Parent(s) with one girl and one boy both under 10 years|
|Parent(s) with two same sex children under 16|
|Parent(s) with one girl and one boy where the oldest child is over 10 years|
|Parent(s) with two same sex children where the oldest child is over 16 years|
|Parent(s) with three children *|
|Parent(s) with four or more children *|
* The maximum number of bedrooms will follow the rule for age and sex separation given for families with two children. Non-dependent children over 16, cousins, grandchildren and other relatives will normally be assessed using the same rules.
Please see Allocation Policy for rules regarding foster children
An additional bedroom can be considered where an overnight carer is needed.
