SOCIAL HOUSING APPLICANTS
Covid-19 : HPL1 Temporary Process
Social Housing applicants should note that in light of the Covid-19 emergency, a temporary alternate arrangement has been put in place that will remove the need for them to have to obtain a physically completed HPL1 form from Revenue, either in person, by post, or by Revenue’s online systems ROS/MyAccount. Instead, the applicant can request that the local authority undertake an electronic process to obtain the information from the Revenue Commissioners. Persons who wish to avail of this option should contact the Housing Department by email at or firstname.lastname@example.org and request that the relevant HPL1 information be obtained on their behalf by Longford County Council
