How to apply to Home Options

We have more people on our housing register than properties available, therefore it is not possible to re-house everyone who applies and it may take a significant amount of time for those that we do re-house.

Please read our guide to applying online [79KB]  and provide as much information as possible so we can deal with your application quickly.

Please note that High Peak Borough Council and other housing associations may charge rent in advance.
