The Housing Options team provides free, expert housing advice to everyone in the borough, whether you own your home or rent it, either privately or from the Council or a housing association. We aim to prevent homelessness, to raise awareness of housing rights and responsibilities and to improve the quality of all types of housing.  If you are looking for somewhere to live or are homeless now, we can help you explore your choices in a clear way.

The Housing Options Service is in the process of planning changes to the way they work with people who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. The changes are in response to the Homeless Reduction Act 2017 which comes into force in April 2018. For more information click word icon Housing Options [73kb]
