Housing options in NI
Lots of people are struggling to manage with housing issues because of the coronavirus crisis. Check out our Coronavirus section for information and advice on common problems, including help to pay your rent and mortgage, eviction and repairs.
Because of the shortage of public housing in Northern Ireland you can wait a long time to be offered a Housing Executive or housing association property even if you are legally homeless. One of your housing options is to try to deal with any housing problems you’re having and see if it’s possible to stay in your current home. If this doesn't work out, you can apply for social housing, try to find a privately rented home or buy your own property.
