Apply for accomodation

Anyone aged 16 or over can apply for accommodation with Swansea Housing Association. Simply telephone us on 01792 479200 for an instant assessment on whether you qualify.

We use a points system to asess housing need fairly. Only those applicants with enough points and a reasonable chance of being housed will be included on the waiting list.

We will assess your housing need using a points system. Points are awarded if:

  • you do not have a right to live in your home
  • you are over crowded
  • your home is too big for your needs
  • you lack or share basic amenities like a kitchen or bathroom with someone else
  • your home needs repairs and is in poor condition
  • you need to move to be able to get to work easily
  • you cannot afford your current rent or mortgage costs
  • you have medical or support needs that are made worse by your current housing


If you qualify to be included on the waiting list list we will then arrange to meet with you to discuss your housing needs and give you an idea of when you may get a home. You will be able to chose where you want to live, but the length of time that you will have to wait will depend on whether we have the type of property you need in the area you want to live, the number of people ahead of you on that waiting list and how often vacancies occur.
