Home-Link Partnership Lettings Policy Consultation

Coronavirus Up-date

Given the current Coronavirus outbreak in the UK, and the potential impact on the workforce, we wanted to make you aware that Applications may take longer to process than usual.  For more details, please look at the website of the provider who looks after your application.

You can help reduce delays by managing your account online, in particular by up-loading documents straight on to your application when you apply.  Please note that offices may be closed to the public to help prevent the spread of the virus, meaning you won’t be able to hand in documents in person.   If you send them by post, there is likely to be a delay putting them on the system.

The number of properties advertised by our partners will also be limited, as the ability to complete viewings and sign-ups may be affected by the Government’s restrictions on movement.

If you have questions or queries about the Home-Link service, please read through the Frequently Asked Questions section.  If you still need assistance, you can contact the relevant Council by telephone or email, using the details shown on the 'Contact' page.  

Thank you for your patience at this time.
