Advice and support

Much of the social housing in the borough is in high demand and, depending on a range of factors including your housing preferences, you may experience a long wait before being made an offer of accommodation by one of the partner landlords.  Other options may be available to help you find accommodation or help to resolve a problem you are currently experiencing with your current accommodation.

The Housing Options Wizard provides a range of information and advice, as well as useful contact details, which you may find helpful in finding accommodation or helping in solving problems that you may have with your accommodation.

Some of the options available include:

  • Low cost homeownership and intermediate renting
  • Private renting
  • Mutual exchanges
  • Social housing
  • Accessible housing
  • Mortgage rescue
  • Sheltered housing
  • Overcrowding and disrepair
  • Adaptations
  • Housing related support
