Applying for a home with the Trust
Although Hornsey Housing Trust is an independent housing association, like most other housing associations in Haringey, we receive nominations for all our vacant properties from Haringey Council, and do not accept applications directly.
If you are homeless, Haringey Council’s Housing Options Team can provide you with further advice and support on exploring a range of options for finding a new home, including joining the council’s waiting list to be nominated for a tenancy with the Trust in the future. Please follow this link for further information: http://www.haringey.gov.uk/housing/housing-options
If you are already a Hornsey Housing Trust tenant and are considering moving to a different home, you can contact your Housing Assistant or Support Services Officer in the first instance to discuss the options available to you, including applying for a transfer to a different Trust home.
