Step 1 - Registration

 How to register:

You will only be able to apply for properties through Hart Homes if you have completed an application form. The application form can be done online here please check below for more information about whether you are eligible to join the register. You will also need to provide identification to us to verify your application, please see the verification section for details.

If you are accepted on to the housing register we will write to tell you:

  • Your housing application number (you need this to bid for properties)
  • The band your application has been placed in and your effective date (the date which you applied)
  • The number of bedrooms you are entitled to bid for based on the Hart bedroom standard

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, bedroom entitlement and effective date.

Am I eligible to join?

You must have been accepted onto Hart District Council'sHousing Register to be able to apply for Housing Association rented properties through Hart Homes. Anyone aged 16 years or over may apply to join the Housing Register.

You will need to complete an application form. This is available online see the 'Online form' tab above. Alternatively if you need a paper copy you can request one from the Housing Options Team. Click 'How to Contact Us' for contact details and opening hours.

Along with your application form you will need to provide the following:

  • Proof of identity for all household members (e.g. passports, birth certificates)
  • Proof of current address (e.g. recent utility bill)
  • Evidence of your right to reside in the UK if you are not a British Citizen (e.g. passport & other relevant Home Office documentation)

Before you are offered a property you will need to provide additional documents to support your application. We will tell you what documents to provide and when to provide them.
All documents provided must be originals, up to date and valid. For a full list of acceptable documents contact the Housing Options Team.

Providing you have properly completed your application form it will be processed but placed in the lowest band, until the documents are received, when it will be moved into the appropriate band from the date they are received. If your application form is incomplete it will be returned to you. The date it is later accepted from will be the date the fully completed form is received.

You will receive a letter confirming that you have been accepted onto the Housing Register. This will tell you the band you have been placed, the date your application has been registered from and the size of property you are eligible for.

There are some people who are not eligible to be included on the Housing Register. These are:

Certain people who are subject to Immigration Control under the 1996 Asylum and Immigration Act.

Certain people from abroad who are not subject to immigration control but who are not habitually resident in the UK, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland.
