Register for housing
Some customers have experienced difficulties when accessing the Lincs Homefinder website. Please be assured that we are currently working on a solution to resolve these issues. In the meantime we have identified that the site is busiest between 7am and 10am so would encourage you to visit the website outside of these times.
If you continue to experience difficulties please do not hesitate to contact our Housing Needs Section if you would like to bid (express an interest) on a particular vacancy as we can do this on your behalf.
Vacancies are advertised from Wednesdays at 00:02 until Mondays 12 noon. No bids can be accepted outside this time frame.
Changing the way we work - Lincs Homefinder
North Kesteven District Council has joined with City of Lincoln Council, West Lindsey District Council and Acis Group Limited to provide a joint choice based lettings scheme to help you find a suitable home in the area.
Choice based lettings (CBL) give you more choice in the area that you move to and the type of property that you live in. Given the huge demand for social housing across central Lincolnshire properties are offered to families or individuals with the greatest housing need first. We match family size to property size to ensure everyone is given an appropriate and affordable property for their needs.
You can download here the policy and a brief guide on how the scheme works. Otherwise for more information about the application process and how the scheme works after you have joined then visit the website www.LincsHomefinder.co.uk.
For existing housing register applicants:
Back in March 2013 you were sent confirmation of how your application has been assessed under the Lincs Homefinder scheme, login/password and how to place bids against vacancies. If you need any assistance or have had a change in your circumstances please contact us.
For those who want to join Lincs Homefinder:
If you want to apply for housing (Council and Housing Association owned) in Lincoln, North Kesteven or West Lindsey you will need to register with Lincs Homefinder.
