Contact Housing Options

The Housing Options service is for people who are homeless or at risk of losing their home.

There are new rules on dealing with common housing problems including notices and evictions during Covid-19. For more information go to GOV.UK: Covid-19 and renting.

We can provide advice and information on dealing with Notices, possession proceedings, rent arrears, mortgage arrears and other common problems.

We will work with you to try and prevent your homelessness and where necessary help you find somewhere else to live.

To protect our customers and colleagues during Covid-19, we are currently offering a telephone and email service. Our telephone service is open from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, closed Wednesday, 9am to 2pm.
