Welcome to Nottingham HomeLinkkey in the door image

Nottingham HomeLink is the one-stop way to find a rented home in the city.

***Important information if you have an incomplete housing application***

We’re upgrading our online Housing Application Form and Choice Based Lettings bidding process.

Housing application form changes will:
• make the new form easier to complete
• let you save your progress and easily return to it later

Bidding changes will:
• make it easier to bid
• only let you see properties that you’re eligible to bid for
• mean you have your own account

As part of the changeover, any incomplete/saved applications will no longer be available after Monday 30 September. If you have an incomplete application, please complete it before this date or you will lose your progress and have to begin again. If you have any questions about these changes, call us on 0115 746 9977 or email us at homelink@nottinghamcityhomes.or.uk

HomeLink is a 'choice-based' lettings scheme where you 'bid' for properties. You can do this through this website, on the phone or at a local housing office.

HomeLink is a partnership between Nottingham City Homes, Nottingham City Council and 11 registered providers (sometimes known as 'housing associations'):

How HomeLink works

You apply and register, then get your reference number and 'band'. The 'band' shows the level of priority you have.

All newly vacant properties are advertised every week from Friday at 12 noon. You can view all available properties on this website or at your local housing office, but you will have to log in to bid.

When you log in you will only see properties which you are eligible for. You can currently make as many bids as you want, but please only bid for properties you are definitely interested in.

Please note that you will not be able to view your bidding position on each property that you place a bid for. This is because your bidding position may not always be an accurate reflection of your position on the short-list, which could cause confusion.

Use the links on this page for more information including other housing options.

Important information

The Housing Allocations Policy has been reviewed to make sure that it reflects the latest law, and is fair and transparent.

While reviewing the policy, we have taken the opportunity to listen to your feedback and made it easier for you to understand the banding processes – the reasons you’re placed in a particular band, and how homes are allocated within the banding system. We would like to know what you think about these changes by clicking here.

Rent in Advance

Nottingham now has Universal Credit – if you are aged between 18-65 and have to claim or are in receipt of Employment Support allowance, Job Seekers Allowance, Income Support, Working Tax Credits, Child Tax Credits and Housing Benefit, you will at some point go onto Universal Credit. For Universal Credit you will need a bank account, e-mail Address and phone number to make or maintain a claim. More information can be found at: www.nottinghamcityhomes.org.uk/uc
