Update 25 March 2020 - Home Choice Plus - coronavirus
Published: Wednesday 25 March 2020
Since the most recent government announcement in relation to coronavirus, most housing association landlords with properties in the partnership area have decided to pause the allocations process.
This means that it is likely that for applicants who have already been matched to properties, these sign-ups may not be taking place for the foreseeable future. If you are affected by this, the housing association landlord will be in touch with you.
Those landlords who are still able to sign up tenants will continue to do this, and they will also be in touch with applicants to explain the process.
Most housing association landlords have also indicated that, for the foreseeable future, no further properties will be advertised on Home Choice Plus. In areas where landlords are still able to allocate, properties may still be advertised.
We would advise you to keep up with local information in relation to coronavirus via your local authority’s website which will have all of the latest guidance and advice.
