Apply for Council Housing
We allocate our properties in line with our Allocations Policy.
Before you apply please read our leaflet "Housing Allocations Policy and Points System" and /or our Easy Read Allocations Policy. These will tell you about the application process, including what types of decisions can be reached based on your own circumstances.
If you want to be considered for housing with Moray Council you will need to register and create a Housing Online account and select the relevant option:
- Create a housing application - to create a new application
- Incomplete Housing Application - to continue with an application which has only been partially completed.
- Completed and accepted - to update and amend an application which has been completed and submitted already.
Once your application has been accepted and assessed
You will be placed on our housing list. When you reach the top of the housing list and if there is a suitable vacancy in the areas you have chosen, then we will make you an offer. We will send you the offer letter to the email address you gave on your application. You will have four working days to tell us if you are interested in the offer or if you want to refuse it.
If you refuse two reasonable offers of accommodation within a period of one year, we will not make any other offers of housing for six months from the date of your last offer.
Applications will be valid for 12 months. If you do not keep your application up to date, your name will be removed from the waiting list, but you can reapply at any time.
Due to such high demand for council properties, you could be waiting a very long time for a property. It’s important to check what other housing options are available.
