Changing Your Application

​The Department of Communities recognises that when people have to wait some time for assistance their circumstances may change.

You can change the area in which you wish to live, the housing type and the number of people to be housed, and still keep the same listing date.

What if my circumstances change?

It is important that you keep the Department informed of any changes to your rental application especially your contact details. If we are unable to contact you, your application may be withdrawn.

If you want to make changes to your rental application, please contact your local Housing Office​. You may be required to complete a form to confirm and/or change your application details.

If there are any changes to the number of people on your application, please let us know so that you are listed for the correct number of bedrooms.

Identity will need to be verified for any co-applicants, partners, additional householders and dependents added to your application.


If there are any changes to the incomes of the people listed on your application, we ask that you also please let us know.​​​​​​​

We may also ask that you complete a Housing Options Assessment which can be completed at any Housing Office​. This will allow us to provide you with advice that is tailored to your circumstances and give you information about other housing products, options or assistance you may be eligible for.
