Apply for a home
Tyne and Wear Homes
We are now advertising homes available in South Tyneside, Gateshead, Newcastle and North Tyneside through a new lettings partnership - Tyne and Wear Homes. This partnership also means that you only have to fill out one application form to register for council housing with all four local councils.
Due to the demand for social rented housing, we must allocate homes according to need. Each home will be advertised with lettings criteria, this will advise you of the household size the home is suitable for.
Before you can apply for a home, you need to be a member of our housing scheme.
To apply you can:
- Complete an online application form (on the Tyne and Wear Homes website)
- Download our Housing Application Form[pdf - 1Mb], complete it by hand and return it to: Homefinder Team, 25-27 Market Place, South Shields, NE33 1JF
- Complete an application form over the phone by calling South Tyneside Homefinder on 0300 123 6633
