The criteria for obtaining social housing are set by Grand Ducal Regulation.

Article 4 of this regulation stipulates that only households that are neither the owner, nor the usufructuary, nor the emphyteutic leaseholder of a dwelling, and who do not enjoy any right of residence in another dwelling, are eligible.

Article 13 of this same regulation further stipulates that only households that have resided in the municipality for at least three years, and households in which at least one member exercises their professional activity in the municipality, meet the conditions of eligibility.


Applications must be made using the appropriate form. Incomplete applications will be returned to applicants by post, with a list of the missing documents needed to complete the application.

This enquiry may be carried out together with other social services involved in the case. Once the application has been reviewed and the social enquiry has been completed, the applicant will receive a receipt of acceptance confirming their registration on the waiting list.

Once per year, a letter is sent to all prospective tenants inviting them to update their application. Applications that are not confirmed will be removed from the waiting list.
