Housing options - advice and assistance

Giving you information so you can make the right choices

We provide a Housing Options Service to anyone with a housing problem. We aim to help you resolve your issues and prevent problems getting worse. We will help you find the best solution.
We offer advice on any housing problems, for example:

  • If you are at risking of losing your home or need to move
  • If your home no longer meets your needs
  • If you want to rent or buy

If you are at risk of becoming homeless we will do all we can to help to stop this happening. If you are homeless we get you  the help you need.
Our Housing Options officers will help you to explore all your options and choices.
