Online housing declaration

Applicants can use this online form to confirm the information that will be provided on their housing application form is accurate. It addition, it gives permission for South Derbyshire District Council to contact other agencies so that we may progress the application for social housing.

If you have a need to be rehoused on medical grounds, you will be required to complete additional questions. Priority may be awarded if the information provided indicates that your current accommodation is having an adverse effect on your health and a move to more suitable property would considerably improve your current circumstances. Restrictions may be attached to the type of property offered, such as a ‘ground-floor recommendation’ where the applicant will only be considered for ground-floor accommodation because of their health and mobility. The property may also require an assessment from an Occupational Therapist to ensure it is suitable or can be suitably adapted.

If your current difficulties are a result of your own actions, priority will not be awarded.
