Homeless applications

We may need to meet with you to take a homeless application.

We'll need to see evidence of who you are, your income and any evidence that you are homeless or threatened with homelessness.

If you can provide all of the documents and evidence needed, we will be able to process your application and provide support more quickly:

  • ID for you and all of your household (e.g. passport, driving licence, birth certificate, etc)
  • National Insurance number for all adults (e.g. NI card, wage slip, benefit award letter)
  • Evidence of homelessness or risk of (e.g. notice served, hospital discharge letter, mortgage repossession letters, etc)
  • If served a section 21, we'll also need the following tenancy information:
    • How to Rent Guide
    • EPC
    • Gas Safety Certificate
    • Deposit Protection Certificate
  • Contact details of who is asking you to leave (e.g. landlord, friend or family member)
  • income (any benefits, wage slips, etc)
  • 3 months bank statements for all accounts
  • medical condition and medications for you and your family members
  • proof of pregnancy (e.g. letter from GP or midwife confirming EDD or your maternity notes) if applicable

You may be asked to provide further information depending on your circumstances.
