About Daventry Housing Register

Daventry's  scheme allows applicants more choice over where they would like to live. The IT system changed on 18th May 2022. Applicants on the Daventry housing register prior to this date were asked to reapply to join our new system. 

Instead of being allocated a property in the Daventry geographical area by West Northamptonshire Council, housing register applicants are able to register an interest in a property that suits your requirements subject to eligibility. Firstly you will need to apply to join the housing register. Please follow this link: https://westnorthants.housingjigsaw.co.uk

Registered Providers (Housing Associations) allow us to advertise their properties that are due to be available. These are advertised on a weekly cycle which begins on a Wednesday at 00:01am and closes the following Tuesday at 23:59pm. 


Once you have joined our housing register you will receive a information detailing the properties you are able to bid for, how to place a bid, and other useful information. 

You will also receive a letter with your login details, which you should keep in a safe place, as you will need it to place bids.

Once you have registered you can browse properties and register interest.

Please do not visit the advertised properties, as they may still be occupied and this could cause distress to the current tenants. Please also be aware that the housing associations request 4 weeks rent in advance when you are offered a property.Thank you.

Eligibility to join Daventry Housing Register

West Northamptonshire Council's Housing Allocation Scheme describes how the Council prioritises applicants in order to ensure that those in greatest housing need are given the greatest priority. 

The scheme also outlines who is eligible to join the housing register as there are some  restrictions on who should be considered for housing
