Anyone who has been accepted onto Harborough Home Search’s Housing Register is able to use the service. To apply to join the Housing Register you must be over 16 years of age.
You will need to complete an application form, which can be downloaded from this website. You can also apply on line or call into the Council offices to collect a Leicestershire Cbl housing application form. The application form enables you to apply for a property to rent from a Housing Association in the district or within the Leicestershire sub-region. You can also register for shared ownership. For details on how to contact us and our opening hours click How to Contact Us or click application form to download a form.
Please make sure you fill in all parts of the application form and remember to provide the proofs indicated on the form - without these we will not be able to assess your application
