Allocation of social Housing
To apply for social housing in Lambeth (that is council and housing association homes) you need to join the housing register. We are not able to offer a home to most people who apply to us for housing; there are currently 20,000 people already on the list and each year we only have about 1,200 new lettings.
Housing applications are taken on line and properties bid for through Choice Based Lettings:- Lambeth website
When assessing the need to move on medical or welfare grounds the Council’s medical advisor will take into account all relevant circumstances including: a physical or learning disability and people with behavioural problems. Depending on circumstances, the Council’s medical advisor can also recommend increasing the allowed property size on medical grounds for instance if it is considered inappropriate for children with SEN to be sharing a bedroom. This does not guarantee applicants will be successful at bidding for homes as there may be other bidders with a higher priority. This is especially the case for larger homes in popular areas.
