Please note that if your landlord is seeking to end your tenancy, the rules around notice periods have changed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Since September 2020 many notices must now give at least 6 months’ notice.
For more information please see the guidance for landlords and tenants section on the main Cherwell District Council website: www.cherwell.gov.uk/info/258/coronavirus
Social landlords are now able to conduct viewings and sign-ups as lockdown measured have been eased. Please note that many staff are still required to work remotely and viewings will need to be carried out in a socially distanced way which may cause some slight delays.
Please be aware that most social landlords are not conducting viewings or sign-ups during the Coronavirus outbreak. If you are matched to a property after making a successful bid there is likely to be a number of weeks delay before a viewing and sign-up to the tenancy can take place.
If you are over 55 you may be eligible for sheltered housing or if you have care needs you may be eligible for extra-care housing. There are a number of sheltered and extra-care schemes across the district. Vacancies are not usually advertised on HomeChoice. For more details and how to apply please see our webpage.
There will be no letting cycle commencing on Christmas day and therefore no properties will be advertised from Wednesday 25 December until the next cycle begins on Wednesday 1 January.
Please note that the Cherwell District Council offices will be closed on Christmas day and will re-open on Monday 30 December.
