New Homes

Lewisham Council is pleased to announce 11 permanently affordable homes to buy.   

Applications for these new properties are now open, please visit our webpage to find out more information.


What is Lewisham FindYourHome?

Lewisham FindYourHome is Lewisham's social housing lettings scheme that allows you to choose the property you would like to live in, which is made up of Lewisham Council and all the main housing associations in the borough.

Properties are advertised every Thursday and you "bid" for homes you are interested in.  You have to join the housing register to be considered ('bid') for properties.  


Please ensure that your local housing office or housing association has an up to date telephone number so that you can be contacted easily.  If the landlord cannot contact you or you can’t view the property, we may offer the property to the next person on the list.

Change of Circumstances

If you are a client of a Housing Association, you MUST contact them regarding any Change of Circumstances and not Lewisham Council.


We aim to process new applications and medical assessments within 12 weeks.  However, due to high levels of demand for the service, the waiting time could be longer. 






Please note: We are no longer providing a face-to-face service at Laurence House.  If you need housing advice visit
