Southwark Council will be launching a new Choice Based Lettings scheme web site on the 18th February 2016. To ensure the smooth transition to the new website we will not have a bidding cycle from the 11-14 February, but don’t worry, you won’t miss out on any properties and your logins will remain the same.


The Choice Based Lettings scheme web site is used by over 11,000 households each week on the housing register to obtain affordable housing in Southwark. The Choice Based Lettings scheme allows customers to choose a property that meets there housing needs in a location of the customers choice and the web site also prioritises the customers in the greatest housing need for the available affordable housing.


The new Choice Based Lettings scheme web site will improve the customer journey through the services provided by Southwark Council, improve customer satisfaction, provide new housing options to customers on-line, provide new and up to date information for customers on-line and allow Southwark tenants to undertake mutual exchanges on the same web site as selecting available accommodation.
