To apply for a council house you need to fill out an application form. Anyone over the age of 16 can apply.

We do not have enough housing for everyone that applies. We assess everyone who applies for housing and award a priority based on their housing need. Even if you have a high priority, you may still have to wait a while before you are made an offer of a house.

The quickest and easiest way to apply is through Housing Online. You will need a myaccount to sign up, which you will already have if you use MyFalkirk.
