Have you previously been told you are unable to join Brent’s housing register because you were homeless?
The council has reviewed it's Housing Allocations Scheme to give reasonable preference to all applicants occupying insanitary or overcrowded housing or otherwise living in unsatisfactory housing conditions. We are aware that a number of applicants have been unable to join Brent Council's housing register and we are taking urgent steps to correct this. If you have previously applied and were not given any priority and your circumstances remain the same as stated in your original housing application, please email: housingreasonablepref@brent.gov.uk
