Completing your application
The Housing Executive uses one form for new applications for housing and for applications for a transfer - the Housing and Transfer Application Form.
This is also the form you use to apply to your local housing association. You need to make sure the form has been filled in accurately. You could be evicted if you are allocated a house because there was incorrect or false information on your application form.
Filling In The Form
This form asks for details about yourself and the other people who will be part of your household. You can include people who don't live with you at the moment, but who will live with you in your new accommodation.
The second part of the application contains a series of questions and statements. Read these carefully. Answer truthfully, sign and date the form. If you get permanent accommodation based on information which is incorrect, you could lose it.
You must keep the Housing Executive informed about any changes in your circumstances. It is best to do this in writing. Keep a copy of the letter. Use the Change of Circumstances letter.
The Housing Executive will not assess you if you do not sign and date your application form. Get advice if you are not prepared to accept the declarations.
After completing the form
Return the completed form to any Housing Executive District Office. You can either post your form or deliver it in person. Keep a note of the office you returned the form to and the date you returned it.
Include any evidence which supports information you've included in your application. For example, a statement from your doctor. Keep a photocopy of any evidence you send with your application.
