Our Homes > Allocations

Allocation Priorities

Applicants on our waiting list for homes are prioritised into four bands that reflect different housing circumstances. Where there is more than one applicant within a band, priority will be assessed on date order. For more information, please download our allocations policy.

We do not consider applications from:

  • Applicants who are subject to immigration control within the meaning of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 or fall within a class of persons from abroad prescribed as ineligible
  • Applicants who are not habitually resident in the UK and have no recourse to public funds
  • Applicants who require accommodation of a size or type that CHA does not own or which is unlikely to become available for letting in a reasonable period of time
  • Applicants who need the support of a recognised care agency to live independently (referrals are accepted from other agencies in such circumstances)
