Applicants with NKDC

During this unprecedented & difficult time we have made changes to our services that affect our usual processes.

Please note that you can still register a Lincs Homefinder application but you may experience delays due to the need for us to prioritize those who may be homeless or at risk of homelessness at this time.

Due to the continuing situation NKDC will continue to allocate properties but where possible this will be done through direct lettings and not through the usual bid cycle process. Please note that there will still be properties advertised but these will be limited to those where we have low demand within our area.

Should you have an current housing need and require urgent assistance eg homeless at this time with no accommodation available to you, be at risk or violence or suffering domestic abuse, being threatened by your landlord etc.. Please contact Housing options Team T:01529 414155 or email Alternatively if you are concerned about your income during this time and issues relating to rent arrears/mortgage arrears, please visit the North Kesteven DC website:  for additional advice & information.

Please note that our offices are closed to the Public but our service remains available & our Officers are here to support you.


Applicants with City of Lincoln Council

In light of the current situation surrounding Covid-19 (Corona Virus) we have made the decision to suspend all allocations through the housing register of City Of Lincoln Council properties. We will continue to allocate to those in band one or who are in emergency situations including homelessness through direct matches and we will continue to advertise housing association properties in the normal way.


If you are homeless or in an emergency situation then please view the city of Lincoln council website for the latest updates on our services during this period or contact the local authority for further advice on 01522 873777. In addition, those that are applying through the housing register may experience longer processing times or responses to queries as we prioritise those who are in most housing need, if you do have any general queries please email through to


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.
