Apply to join Fife Housing Register

Before completing this form we recommend that you:

  • Complete a Housing Option Plan
    • This is a personalised plan tailored to your individual circumstances, it outlines the various options that are available to address your housing needs.
  • Use the FHR properties tool
    • This lets you know the number of properties in each area so you can make an informed decision about your areas of choice.

Before you begin to complete the form it would be useful to have available:

  • Your email address, phone number and your National Insurance number
  • Your, and any joint applicants, address history for the last three years, including the details of current former landlords, and their contact details
  • The names and dates of births of everyone you are including in your application, even those you are living with but who will not be moving with you
  • Any lease or notice to leave paperwork from your landlord. We will need to see a copy of this paperwork
  • If there is anyone on your application over 16 who does not live with you at the moment but will be rehoused with you, they will need to complete a separate application form. This enable us to assess your application for housing correctly, taking into account both your current living arrangements
