When and How to Apply

When and how can affordable housing applications be made?

Applications will be accepted through an online application system only. The system will allow for input of all relevant data and successful applicants will subsequently be requested to upload all required supporting documentation.  Applicants must firstly “Register as a new client” on the Council’s Housing Online (HOL) system (see https://www.sdcc.ie/en/services/housing/housing-online/ for more details).  

Please note that the deadline for applications for this scheme has now closed.

Applications and supporting documents will be accepted only through the online application portal. 

The order of allocation of these homes will be selected at random by a draw of all eligible applicants. Selected applicants will be required to fully verify their application details and offered the opportunity to purchase a property in sequence until all properties have been sold.

The developer is not involved in the administration or the selection process for this affordable housing scheme.

Some, or all, of the following documentation may be required from successful applicants as part of the verification of their application details:

  • Proof of income (e.g., current salary certificate for PAYE employees; Accountants Report/Audited Accounts/Current Tax Balancing Statement/Current Preliminary Revenue Tax Payment Receipt for self-employed persons)
