Temporary housing

If you're already living in our temporary housing, you can find some useful information in this section about rent, repairs and maintenance, looking after your home and more.

Where will I be housed?

We have properties all across London. You’re most likely to be housed in the borough where you’ve applied for permanent rented housing. But depending on what’s available, you may be placed in a property outside your borough.

How long will I stay in temporary housing?

You can stay in temporary housing until:

a) Your lease runs out;
b) You are placed in permanent rented housing by your local authority;
c) You choose to leave.

Please note that there may be exceptions to the above situations. Read more about moving home.
