Apply for housing

We can offer a variety of ways to help you find a suitable home within Mansfield. However, as there is a high demand for our council properties you will have to meet certain criteria before you can apply for a council or housing association property

Most people will need to have a local connection to the Mansfield or Ashfield areas to register with our Homefinder service. There are also cases where people with no local connection will be able to register with Homefinder. Please check our local connection guidelines to see if you qualify to join the Housing Register.

To be eligible to bid for a social housing property you first need to register online by visiting the Homefinder website. (Application forms are also available at the Civic Centre).

When your application has been registered you will receive your unique six digit reference number. You can then start bidding on properties that have been advertised and for which you are eligible.

Properties are advertised on the Homefinder website every Wednesday morning and you can place a bid right through to the following Monday night.

Homefinder is the lettings partnership between the Mansfield and Ashfield district councils and housing associations in both districts.

For more details regarding Homefinder, please visit the Homefinder website.

All council properties are let in accordance with the Homefinder lettings policy
