As of 1st July
2009, provided you meet the eligibility requirements, you must
first register with the Office of Housing for public housing. On
registering you will be issued with a Registration Number which
you must retain. You will also be asked if you have any
objections to your application being referred to a Housing
Association. (Common Equity Housing Limited is one such
Association and is the parent company of this Co-operative).
On your contact
with Common Equity Housing Limited (CEHL) to apply you will be
required to attend an information session (approx two hours),
and on completion will be supplied with an Application to be
placed on their database.
When a CERC has a
property available for rental it will ask Common Equity Housing
Limited for a number of applicants from the "Trained"
database and conduct interviews of the applicants supplied.
