Because of the shortage of social housing some people will wait a very long time before they get offered a property. You could have a long wait, even if you passed the 4 homeless tests and are legally homeless.
Waiting for an offer
The best way to increase your chance of getting an offer is to either:
- try to increase the number of points you’ve been given or
- change your areas of choice to a less popular area or an area with more available social housing
- apply for a property advertised as part of the Housing Executive's choice based lettings pilot.
