Property offers - possible tenancy start date delays


Due to the current national shortage of building material supplies which is beyond our control, we are experiencing, in some cases, delays in completing the necessary works required during the void period. This therefore will unfortunately result in your expected tenancy date being delayed.

We thank you for your patience but ask you please not to contact the Allocation Team for updates as they are unable to provide any information while works are still being undertaken.

Please be assured that we are doing all we can to ensure that the property is available for you at the earliest possible date, and we will contact you as soon as all necessary works are complete.
