The Council deal with the administration of the housing register, the allocation of properties within our Council stock and nominations to registered social landlords. This involves liaison with many different agencies such as the Police, Social Services and Health Departments to ensure that the allocations are as accurate as possible and that the correct support is offered to applicants.
The Council works to ensure that all empty council properties are available for allocation as soon as possible. This also includes decanting any tenants due to disrepair.
Tenancy Services visit applicants and offers an advice service to help applicants both applying for accommodation and existing tenants.
There is 24 hour cover for homelessness. The majority of our service operates from our Grantham offices.
