Further to updated Government guidance which was issued on 13 May, we are informing you that we will resume advertising social housing properties on 4 June 2020.
From Thursday 4 June, some available properties will be advertised on the Gateway to Homechoice site while some might also be directly let to applicants who meet criteria stated within the local lettings plan.
To begin with, you will not be able to move across local authority boundaries, unless you have a specific connection to more than one local authority. This is to ensure that each local authority is able to meet its own housing need within its own area and we will let you know when cross-boundary moves are permitted again.
Please also be aware that it may take longer than usual to complete shortlisting over the next few weeks so we ask you to bear with us at this time
If you are invited to view a property and have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 please do not agree to view any properties but instead inform the relevant housing provider that you have these symptoms and that you are self-isolating. Some providers may send you videos/photos of the properties instead of inviting you to view a property in person.
If you viewed a property prior to lockdown, please contact the relevant landlord of the property who will be able to provide you with an update on the property you viewed
