Homesearch – Third National Lockdown
If a client/household has placed a bid prior to the lockdown and subsequently refuses to view a property because of the lockdown, Homesearch will pass onto the next candidate at the request of the landlord. If the client is subject to the ‘one offer only’ policy and refuses to view/sign-up because of the lockdown this may be counted as a refusal, however, the Council will consider this on an individual basis.
If any client/household bids for a property during lockdown they will be expected to view/sign-up. If they do not wish to view a property and/or move they should not bid for properties during the lockdown period. However, there may be some households who have to move.
To log into Lewisham Homesearch you will need your unique Housing register number and your memorable date.
