An application for re-housing will be removed from the Housing Register in the following circumstances. This will end the right of an applicant to be offered re-housing on this application.

- Has failed to respond to other correspondence relating to their housing application
- Is an existing applicant and has requested and received major adaptations to their current property. (The applicant will be advised of the implications for their request for re-housing as part of the adaptations process. Minor adaptations up to the limit specified in the Adaptations Policy will not affect the Housing Application)
- Is an existing Bassetlaw District Council tenant and has terminated their tenancy
- Has moved out of the Bassetlaw area.
