Purbeck Housing Register – Time’s running out to renew
Purbeck District Council is putting out a final reminder to all Housing Register applicants who’ve not yet completed a new renewal form. In January, everyone on the Housing Register was asked to complete the new registration form in advance of the introduction of a new computerised system.
Fiona Brown, Housing Manager at Purbeck District Council,said: “Anyone who hasn’t completed the renewal form won’t be registered on the Dorset Home Choice scheme and won’t be able to place a ‘bid’ for a property until a new application form is completed and registered. The registration process can take up to 20 working days. “Any renewal application received after 18 July will be dated from the date it is received unless there are exceptional circumstances to explain the late return. This means you could lose time accrued on the housing register. “We urge people to renew their application now and save time and disappointment in the future.Fiona concluded: “We hope people will realise the importance of re- registering by 18 July.”
Forms can be completed online atwww.dorsethomechoice.org. Applicants are advised to save the form regularly as it will 'time out' after approximately 30 minutes of inactivity. Alternatively, they can contact the Housing Needs Team on 01929 557370.
