Review of Angus Homefinder Applications – How to Review Your Application

It is now almost a year since we moved to our new online housing application and choice-based lettings allocations system.

We must carry out regular reviews of applications to make sure the Common Housing Register is up to date and the details we have are accurate for any bids you make.

Our HomeFinder team plans to start carrying out the first review from the new system on week beginning 18 October 2021. 

We’ll review 100 applications at a time so you may not be contacted straight away. When you are asked to review your application, we’ll send you an email advising you to log in to your application to tell us if there has been any changes to your circumstances. Please also check your junk or spam email folders.  If we do not hold an email address on your application, we’ll send you a letter. It’s important you do not ignore this or your application could be cancelled.

Remain on the Housing Register

If you want to stay on the Housing Register, you must log in to your application and complete a Change of Circumstances, even if there are no changes to be made. If you have forgotten your log in details, you can request a reminder of these on the log in page.

You can access your application here.

Once logged in, you should click “Report a change of circumstances”. This will then take you through your application form so you can check all your details are correct and submit the application.

Follow the prompts using the “Next” button until you reach any section you want to change and make the changes required.

At the end of the application, make sure you enter the current date in the privacy notice then click “Finish”.

Any changes you make on this form will be reviewed by a member of our team before they take effect. You will still be able to bid for properties during this process, unless your application needs further assessment on medical or support grounds.

Cancel your Application

If you no longer wish to remain on the Housing Register you can cancel your application by logging in and selecting “Cancel my application”, shown below:

If you do not respond to the review within 21 days, we will cancel your application, and you will not be able to bid on or be matched to any available properties. However, if you contact us within three months of cancellation, you can go back on to the CHR. The date of registration will be the date you made the original application.

If you need further advice or assistance, you should contact any local library

or ACCESSLine on 03452 777 778.
