6th April 2020


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.


North Kesteven District Council will continue to advertise properties through the website in the normal way and applicants are advised to continue to use the website to search for properties they may be interested in and place bids accordingly.


If you are homeless or in an emergency situation then please contact your local authority for further advice. 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 are registering an application, please remember to make a note of your 6 digit reference number as you will need this each time you login as your login reference


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


If you have started an application to register for Social Housing but have not fully submitted the application within 28 days then it will be cancelled.


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


If you have logged in to place bids but have not updated all the information on your application you may be overlooked for a property. For more information see ‘Latest news’ by clicking view all news and selecting April – Important information.

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.
