Join the Housing Register

To apply for social housing and bid on properties, you need to join the Housing Register.

The Housing Register is a list of people who qualify for social housing and need our help to find somewhere to live.  

There is limited supply of social housing in Chelmsford, so there are restrictions on who can join the Housing Register.

Even if you can join the Housing Register, we might not be able to find you a property.

You would be more likely to find somewhere to live if you looked at other options, like renting privately.
