We aim to process applications within 25 working days. We always prioritise applications of an emergency nature and also process applications where applicants are eligible for properties that are in low demand. Along with your application form you will be asked to provide the following documents:

  • Proof of identity for all household members (e.g. passports, birth certificates)
  • Proof of current address (e.g. recent gas or electricity bill)
  • Evidence of your right to reside in the UK if you are not a British Citizen (e.g. passport and other relevant documents from the Home Office)
  • Proof of Local Connection if you are not a resident of Swindon Borough for the last 2 years (council tax bill for relative, utility bills, birth certificate)

Before you are offered a property you may be asked to provide further documents to support your application. We will tell you what documents to provide and when to provide them.

All documents provided must be originals, up to date and valid. For a full list of acceptable documents contact the Housing Needs Team.

Once the documents are received your application will be assessed and placed in the appropriate band from the date the documents were received. Click Application Bands for more details on our banding scheme.
