Waltham Forest Housing Self Assessment
Welcome to the self–assessment form for Waltham Forest Council's Housing Register. Demand for social rented housing in Waltham Forest is high with approximately 16000 applications on the Housing Register at any time. We let about 1000 homes each year, so the majority of people who apply for social housing will never be successful and we recommend that they consider other housing options.
The self-assessment tool provides a quick guide to your priority for housing with Waltham Forest Council. If you want help to decide if you should apply for social rented housing, please answer the self-assessment questions to find out your likely priority band and what this means for your chances of getting social housing. All applications are placed in one of 3 bands and priority within each band is decided by the date of the application.
