Welcome to New Forest Homesearch. This is the waiting list and allocation scheme for our properties and those for housing associations in the New Forest area.
The waiting list policy gives us greater control over who can be on the list. Changes include removing applicants with no connection to the area. We have also removed those considered unsuitable due to anti-social behaviour.
The tenancy strategy shows our approach to the tenancies offered to applicants. New tenants will be offered fixed-term tenancies, usually for five years, rather than lifetime tenancies. This helps us make best use of our housing by tackling under-occupation and encouraging tenants to explore other housing options, if they have the resources to do so.
Elderly and vulnerable people and existing tenancies will retain their lifetime security of tenure.
If you have any questions about the policies, please email the Housing Options team using the link above.
