Common Allocation Policy

We operate a Common Allocation Policy which has been developed in partnership with other local housing providers (Cernach HA, and Kingsridge Cleddans HA).

The policy sets out an agreed, common approach that we will use to allocate homes that become available for let.  The Common Allocation Policy is based on a group, plus points system and has a clear focus on meeting housing need.

Visit our policy documents page for more information.

Policy Documents

Apply for Housing

We operate an online application system in partnership with Cernach HA and Kingsridge Cleddans HA.  The system is designed to simplify the application process; complete one application form, submit your form to one, two or all three partners simultaneously.

Please follow the online instructions to complete and submit your application for housing.  If you require help to submit your application please see our contact us page for details of how to get in touch.


We will at some point require verification from you of your details.  If you can submit these with your application that would be useful, otherwise we will follow up with you later.  The verification we will need for you, and anyone aged 16 or more who wishes to be rehoused with you, includes:

  • 1 form of Proof of Identification i.e. Passport, Driving Licence, Birth Certificate, Bank Card (signed)
  • 1 form of proof of address i.e. Utility bill, bank statement, Benefit letter (must be within last 6 weeks)
  • Proof of Child Benefit i.e. Bank Statement showing award, Award letter

Housing Options

We advise all applicants to complete a Housing Options interview along with their housing application. The interview takes approximately 45 minutes depending on your circumstances.

Housing Options is an approach which offers personal advice to anyone who may need housing advice or assistance. It aims to support you if you feel you are struggling to stay in your current home, to help you make informed choices about your housing options/future and to prevent you from becoming homeless.

Change in Circumstances

You should only use this form if you are already registered on Pineview's Housing Register and want to report a change in your circumstances.

Until you are rehoused or your application is withdrawn or cancelled, you must inform us immediately of change of circumstances, for example:

  • a change in your health, which is affected by your housing
  • someone in the household becoming pregnant
  • a member of your family or friend leaving or joining the household
