Housing Advice; includes information on how to apply for council and housing association accommodation and advice to help you with your housing problem.

Buying your own home and shared ownership

Sheltered housing

Mutual Exchange


On 16 December, Fareham's Executive agreed to adopt a new Allocation Policy which ended the choice based lettings scheme known as LetSelect.

This means properties becoming available for re-letting are no longer advertised on our website but are allocated via a direct matching system – this is where officers at the council identify a suitable applicant on the Housing Register for each vacancy that arises.

We no longer have application forms to join the Housing Register.  If you have a housing problem and think you may need social housing, please contact a member of the Housing Options team.

Please refer to the new Allocation Policy for more information.
