The Common Housing Register (CHR) - apply4homes

What is the Common Housing Register (CHR)?

We and our partners have developed a Common Housing Register (CHR) called 'apply4homes'.  This means you can make a single application for social housing in Aberdeenshire and Moray to any of the partners.

How do I apply?

To apply, you will need to register on the apply4homes website http://www.apply4homes.org.uk/.  If you do not have access to the internet, you can visit your local library or any of the partners' offices.  If you need help to apply, please phone us on 0300 123 4566 or contact any of our partners.

The apply4homes website will only collect your information.  It does not make any assessment of your housing need - this will be assessed by each partner's Allocations Policy (which you can find on the apply4homes website).

What if I applied for housing with you before 4th May 2012?

If you applied before the apply4homes system was introduced (we stopped accepting paper application forms on 4th May 2012) then your basic details have been uploaded to the apply4homes website.  We sent you a letter asking you to go online and update your application.

How long will my application be active for?

Unless you accept an offer of accommodation from one of the partners, your application will be active for 12 months from when you first apply or make any changes to your application on the apply4homes website.

What should I do if my circumstances change?

If any of your circumstances change, you should update your application on the apply4homes website http://www.apply4homes.org.uk/.  If you need help to do this phone us on 0300 123 4566.

Do I have any other housing options?

Remember that not all social landlords in Moray and Aberdeenshire are part of the apply4homes scheme.  You will need to apply to them separately.

You can find out more about other housing options, such as the private rented sector and low cost home ownership in our 'Guide to Housing Options in Moray'.
