Council housing

Do you qualify for housing in Bury?

If you would like to rent a council property you will need to apply to join our Housing Register.

We have more people on our waiting list than properties available therefore, it is not possible to re-house everyone who applies and it may take a significant amount of time for those that we do re-house. Due to this we ask you to check whether you are eligible and qualify for housing in Bury before you complete an application form.
