Housing Allocations Policy
The Housing Allocations Policy is currently under review.
Our new Housing Allocations Policy 2015 is now in use.
The new Allocations Policy has been introduced to ensure that allocation of housing in the Borough is made to those in greatest need and to give applicants a clearer and more realistic view of their chances of being allocated social housing.
When you bid for properties, your level of priority will be determined by your Housing Needs Band (A, B or C) and the date you joined the Register.
Due to the very high demand for social rented housing in Haringey, almost all of it will be offered to applicants in Housing Needs Bands A and B.
Therefore, we strongly urge applicants in Band C to visit our housing options page or call 020 8489 1000 for further advice.
The new Housing Allocations Policy will place applicants for housing in a Band from A to C.
- Band A is for those applicants who have the most urgent or critical housing need
- Band B is for those applicants who have a high priority housing need
- Band C is for those applicants who have an identified housing need
To join the Register please visit our Housing Register page.
The full policy, a summary of the policy and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) can be downloaded from the attached files section.
A separate housing register and banding system is in place for those in need of supported housing.
