Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

As you may be aware, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) infections have now reached pandemic levels and it is now affecting our daily lives.

Therefore, our service on Your Choice Your Home has also been affected.

The following decision has been agreed with all partners for Your Choice Your Home:

Properties which you may have bid for that have already closed and you have been contacted, there will be a delay in viewings and signing up of these tenancies.

All other properties will be withdrawn. There will be no shortlisting of properties, viewings or sign up’s for any tenancies within North Norfolk, however this may be subject to change. The Housing Associations are acting within the guidelines using the most up to date information from government. 

The Housing Associations will only be advertising selected properties for example: Housing With Care or Shared Ownership

Due to the current situation the Local Authority have obtained agreement with Registered Providers and with support from Central Government and have agreed to evoke special measure under the Allocation Scheme.

This means that with immediate effect the Local Authority will be focusing on rehousing all clients that are currently homeless and living in temporary accommodation or street homeless. The Local Authority is being restricted by the availability of properties in both the Social Housing and Private Rented sector and is unable to estimate when such households will receive an offer of accomodation.

The Housing Options Team are still working however the service is having to try and prioritise the urgent cases first and foremost therefore there may be a delay in their response to you. We would appreciate your patience during this time and will endeavour to respond to your enquiries as soon as possible.

Thank you

 

Welcome to North Norfolk "Your Choice Your Home"

Your Choice Your Home is the Choice Based Lettings scheme for North Norfolk. Under the scheme properties in North Norfolk are advertised as they become available; most properties will be for rent from a housing association but others will be for rent from a private landlord or being sold on a shared ownership basis.

There is a severe shortage of homes in the North Norfolk area. Most applicants on the Housing Register will have to wait a long time for re-housing.  Depending on your circumstances you may wish to consider other options such as renting in the private sector. For more information please look at our - Housing Options and Private landlords for information.
