Introduction of pre housing register interviews for all new applicants

Published: Thursday 20 July 2017

Rationale

 

  • Pre housing registration interviews will give new customers an opportunity to learn about Rotherham Council homes and other affordable housing options.

  • It also helps us to understand the needs of our customers, giving tenancies the best possible start.

  • Housing register processes will be amended and streamlined, cutting down on time, printing and postage costs.

  • As proof of identity will be provided at the pre-tenancy interview stage, the customer will be able to make bids earlier than current processes allow.

  • This will also help to prepare for the pending Homelessness Reduction Bill by creating a more robust package of advice and assistance to prevent and relieve homelessness for all applicants regardless of priority need status.

 

1.2 Implementation - The interviews will start W/C 24th July 2017.
