Social housing in Norderstedt (council housing)

The council has helped fund many flats in Norderstedt. These flats are allocated via housing associations in cooperation with the city.

Therefore, applications for council housing need to be sent directly to the housing associations. A list of housing associations can be found in our information leaflet Info WBS. You can also view this online.

In addition, you can also go to the Norderstedt city council – department for housing benefit – and enter your name into an applicants’ list. We will then, especially in urgent cases, help you as best we can in finding a council flat. Due to the current situation on the housing market, the flat-hunting process may be rather time consuming.

To move into council housing, you need a Wohnungsberechtigungsschein [certificate of eligibility to social housing]. You can apply for this at the city council, department for housing benefit.

However, the application can only be made in Norderstedt if you already live here. If you are moving to Norderstedt from a different city/community in Schleswig-Holstein, you need to apply for the certificate of eligibility to social housing at your old city/community administration. If you are moving to Norderstedt from a different federal state, you can apply for the certificate of eligibility to social housing here.

To receive a certificate of eligibility to social housing, a certain level of income must not be exceeded. There are different income limits. These are dependent on the way the social housing has been financed. In addition, the income limit depends on the number of family members.

The relevant form, with which you can apply for the certificate of eligibility to social housing and with which you can register as ‘looking for accommodation’, can be downloaded here.

The certificates of eligibility to social housing issued by the city of Norderstedt are only valid in Schleswig-Holstein. If you are moving to a different federal state, you will need to contact the local administration there.
