How to join the housing register

Are you eligible to join the register

To be considered for social housing, you will first need to be considered 'eligible' to apply. A person subject to immigration control or a person from abroad may be ineligible according to regulations and therefore unable to join the housing register.

To qualify to join the register

To qualify you will need to demonstrate a 'local connection' to the borough

  • you or a permanent member of your household live in Runnymede and have done so for the past three consecutive years
  • you or a permanent member of your household are currently employed within Runnymede and have been for the past twelve consecutive months
  • you or a permanent member of your household have been in continuous self-employment for the past twelve consecutive months, where the work is within Runnymede
  • you or a permanent member of your household have a unique/exceptional health or welfare reason to live in Runnymede and have an immediate relative living in Runnymede. The relative must have lived in Runnymede for the past ten consecutive years. This is based on a specific health service which only exists in Runnymede and cannot be accessed elsewhere.
