Online Housing Applications

Our priority is to discuss your housing situation and advise you of your housing options before we accept a housing application. This is because of the shortage of accommodation in the city and so that we can give you the best advice to get you suitably housed as soon as possible.


You will be asked if your local authority is Derby, or South Derbyshire.
If you select South Derbyshire, you will actually be applying to join South Derbyshire Homefinder and will not have access to your application. Please make sure you choose Derby.
