Housing in West London is in short supply and it is unlikely that you will get a new home through this scheme. There are over sixty nine thousand applicants currently registered for housing at any one time but we house less thank four thousand a year. We have therefore developed other options, which we encourage you to consider.
The common options are: -
- Shared Ownership
- DIYSO - Do It Yourself Shared Ownership
- Key worker Housing
Other nationwide schemes to consider are:
ODPM Key Worker Living- This ODPM site contains links to all of the zone agent areas and organisations, However in general, the term ‘key worker’ refers to a person employed by the public sector in a frontline role, delivering an essential public service where there are serious recruitment and retention problems. The key worker living programme offers assistance to key workers in the form of Key Worker Homebuy equity loans as well as shared ownership and intermediate renting opportunities.
Moving out of London - LAWN links councils and housing associations that have long waiting lists for housing with councils and housing associations that may have empty homes or shorter lists.
Housing Care - UK housing for older people
Homeswapper - Homeswapper helps thousands of people move throughout the UK each year through a number of schemes.
