Housing and Homelessness

We can help with all kinds of housing issues. We also advise landlords, however we cannot complete Court forms for landlords. We can help those seeking Local Authority assistance with applications and appeals.

Homelessness

The primary source of help for homeless people in the Borough is Bexley Council, you can complete a Housing Support Form. There is very little housing in the Borough, generally the Council will only directly support those who are in priority need and have lived in the Borough for more than 5 years. The Council makes extensive use of temporary accomadation due to the lack of social housing in the Borough. The Council offers a number of schemes to help you rent in the private sector.

If you have children the Council will always have a duty to ensure no harm comes to the children under The Children Act.
