If you complete a New Social Housing Application you will be required to submit Identification documents (ID) to support your application. If you are not currently a Sheffield City Council Tenant, you will also be required to submit a Landlord Reference. Your documents should be submitted all together at your nearest Neighbourhood Office or Howden House and should be original documents, please do not submit photocopies.


If you make changes to your existing application and ID is required we will write to you to let you know the appropriate ID to submit

Further information on the acceptable list of ID can be found here  and information on References and a printable version of the Form can be found here.

If you fail to submit the required ID documents and Reference your application may be cancelled as a result.

SCC Housing Register Review Letters.

Published: Wednesday 22 March 2017

Throughout 2017 we will continue our ongoing review of the SCC Housing Register. This means that we will be asking everyone who has applied for social housing to log on into their housing registration, and to check and update their details.

Not all customers will be reviewed at the same time. If you have a housing application we will contact you to ask you to update your details. You must do this within the specified timescale, which is normally 28 days from the date we have asked you to do this

To login you will need your housing registration number (which begins ‘HR –‘ and is shown on any previous correspondence from us). When logging in, you only enter the numbers between the dashes. For example, if your letter listed your housing registration number as 'HR-103579-1' you would enter '103579' to log in.

You will also need your memorable date which is personal to you. There is a facility on the Sheffield Property Shop website which will allow you to reset this if you have forgotten it.

If you do not complete the review when we ask you to, your housing application will be cancelled and you will lose any waiting time you have built up. If this happens and you still want to be considered for social housing you will need to complete a new housing application.
