Priority for social housing is given to those with the greatest housing need. It is unlikely that we would be able to offer accommodation to those with little or no housing need.


Housing need is generally defined as those who are


·         Homeless / threatened with homelessness

·         Occupying accommodation that is too large or too small for the household

·         Living in accommodation which is unsuitable because of medical reasons

·         Living in unsatisfactory or unsanitary conditions

·         Needing to move to give or receive support or for employment reasons


If you do not fall into one of the above categories, we strongly advise that you do not register for Lincs Homefinder and that you seek alternative accommodation such as in the privately rented sector.


We receive an extremely high number of applications and the current processing time for applications is 8 weeks.


Before submitting your application, please ensure you have read the list of required documents – this is available on the ‘Latest News’ page

Welcome to Lincshomefinder

Lincshomefinder is a partnership between City of Lincoln Council and North Kesteven District Council.

Once you are registered with Lincshomefinder you can complete an application form to be placed on the housing register. After your application has been accepted you can use this website to search and bid on properties in the City of Lincoln and North Kesteven area.

We operate a choice based letting process, which means you have more flexibility in choosing where you wish to live in the area.
