I hope you have your pumpkins ready as Halloween approaches! We have a two important consultations running at the moment which we wanted to remind you about.

Tenancies and Leases- Formal consultation on the new Homes for Lambeth tenancies and leases officially started last month. Once again we can’t stress enough how important it is for you to provide your feedback on these. If you have been unable to attend our special drop -ins regarding these, please contact us or your Independent Advisor Yvonne to ask any questions, the next drop-in is on 17th October focusing on Lease questions. Remember that you have until the  3rd November 2017 to have your say.


Housing Management –consultation is also open on the future Housing Management service. Like with the Tenancies and Leases you should read through the booklet and feedback to us with information and questions about the future management of the estate.

You have until the  15th December 2017 to have your say on Housing Management. Please note these consultations will only be with Broadstone House, Sturminster House, Verwood House, Osmington House and Swanage House as future tenancies and leases for new properties will be with Homes for Lambeth as will the management of the blocks.

Hello everyone,

I can’t believe its October already!

With Autumn is drawing in there will be lots for you to consider over the coming months as the regeneration programme moves forward.

Consultation on new leases and tenancies

Independent Advisors commissioned Lewis Silkin, a firm of solicitors to review the Council’s proposed new tenancies and leases, and they did a great job in recommending required changes in preparation for the consultation. You will have received your consultation booklet from the council on the new tenancies and leases. The consultation will run until 3rd November, so it is important that you voice your opinions and/or concerns about the proposed changes. Please remember that the tenancies and leases for your new home will relate to Homes for Lambeth and not the council.

You can complete and return the booklet in writing to:


Have your say –leases C/O,

Consultation and Engagement Team,

3rd Floor,

Olive Morris House,

Brixton Hill,

London SW2 1RD

Or in person at no.2 Broadstone House at our weekly drop-in every Tuesday from 3.30pm to 7.00pm.
