We operate in five London boroughs where we work with the local authorities in achieving their strategy for housing. We have existing stock and build homes in the following London boroughs; Hackney, Waltham Forest, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Enfield.
We do not maintain a waiting list, meaning that we do not take direct applicants for housing. All new tenants to NLMHA are referred to us from referral agencies (ie the local authorities).
When we build new properties or our existing properties become empty, we advertise these under the local authority’s choice based lettings system. Successful applicants from the local authority are then forwarded to us to provide homes. It is the local authority who identifies eligibility for housing.
As part of our lettings process we carry out identity and affordability checks before we rent our properties.
