We are consulting on changes to our Allocations Scheme (how we let social housing) and would like to hear your views. You can find out more and respond at https://lewisham.gov.uk/mayorandcouncil/influence/consultations
Homesearch – Second National Lockdown
Following the Government’s announcement of a lockdown from Thursday 5th November for four weeks, Homesearch will continue, in the usual way, to advertise and let social housing in Lewisham.
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 will not be counted as a refusal and they can continue to bid for a property after the lockdown ceases. The ‘one offer’ policy will then apply.
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.
To log into Lewisham Homesearch you will need your unique Housing register number and your memorable date.
