Refurbishing homes to let, viewing, bidding and moving

We are doing everything we can to support the vulnerable and help people into a safe place to live sooner, following government guidance. 

There is an interim approach to our allocations policy that ensures employment points are not removed if applicants lose their jobs, or have their hours reduced, due to COVID-19. Find information on our policy.

The moving process has also changed, including:

  • only carrying out viewings digitally through photographs or video instead of in-person
  • signing tenancy agreements electronically wherever possible
  • following strict safety measures based on COVID-19 risk assessments when relocating

If you are waiting for more suitable housing, we will keep you updated via letter, email and text about any changes moving forward. You can contact us with any questions about housing applications including bidding, by calling 0207 641 1000 or email [email protected]
