Housing applicants on our Deferred Register are not eligible to bid on housing. Removing the Deferred Register makes better use of our resources because we will no longer maintain thousands of records for applicants with no realistic chance of being offered social housing.
If an applicant's housing needs change, they should make a new application on the Moving with Dacorum website and we will assess whether they are eligible to join the housing register.
Removing the Deferred Register in its current form will avoid any false hope applicants may have and encourage them to explore other options to improve their current situation.
If you are on the Deferred Register because you are eligible for a direct offer of housing, but not able to bid on properties, then you will remain on the Deferred Register until you are housed.
