About the housing register

The housing register is the list of people who qualify for council housing and are waiting to be offered a property. There are currently around 3,000 people waiting for housing in Hammersmith & Fulham.

We can't offer a home to everybody who applies for housing so only applicants with high levels of identified housing need will be accepted onto the housing register.

Our Housing Strategy (pdf)  and Housing Allocations Scheme aim to ensure that households with the greatest and the most pressing need for housing get housed. Due to a shortage in housing, it can take up to 10 years for you to be offered a place.
