Apply for social housing

We’re committed to allocating all social and affordable housing in the borough to those in most need, and ensuring people have the best chance of sustaining their tenancy. To deliver this, we manage a choice-based lettings system on our Moving with Dacorum website, which advertises all social and the majority of affordable housing options. This includes stock held by us and housing associations, also known as registered providers.

Social housing is designed to be affordable accommodation for households who do not have the resources to buy their own homes or rent privately, or who have specialist housing needs - for example, a disability or higher support need.

Due to the shortage of social housing in the borough, many people will never be allocated a Council property. Even if you have a high housing need, it is likely that you will have to wait a considerable amount of time before you are offered a property.
