Join the register
If you would like to join the register please be aware that you will have to meet our eligibility criteria, and that there are many more people registered than there are homes available. You will not be able to bid on a property until you have joined the register and your application is approved.
If you are an existing tenant of a registered social landlord please contact your landlord with any queries relating to your application.

Properties that are available for rent will be advertised from Thursday to Sunday each week. Please note that on weeks with a bank holiday there will be no properties advertised.
If you see a property you are eligible for and interested in then login and apply for it. This process is known as bidding. "The bidding cycle is Thursday to Sunday midnight. However, please note Lewisham Officers can make management bids up to 5pm on the following Monday, which may alter applicants bidding positions". You can also view results of recent lettings.
