Sanctuary Housing - London and South East

We have a wide range of homes available to rent or buy and are committed to providing quality homes and excellent services that meet the needs of the local community.

Renting a home

General rented housing provides affordable homes for people on low incomes. Our rented properties are available at lower rents than the open market.

Lettings for our general rented properties in London or the South East are carried out in partnerships with the Choice Based Lettings Schemes, Kent HomeChoice and Sussex Homemove.

People wanting to live in any of the London boroughs should contact the relevant local authority and enquire about how to register for the Choice Based Lettings scheme that they operate.

Residents already living in Sanctuary properties can apply to join our transfer lists, but should also approach the local authority as most of our properties are let through Choice Based Lettings (this is because of nomination agreements in place) and the wait for another property can be considerable.

Change of circumstances

Should your circumstances change, please let us know by filling in the 'Change of Circumstances' section on our online form.

Housing for older people

Sanctuary provides high quality schemes which benefit from a scheme manager service, allowing residents to live comfortably, securely and independently.

Residents have their own self-contained accommodation; services include a dedicated scheme manager responsible for the management of the building and communal areas, 24-hour in-house telecare service and a separate 24-hour phone line to report any repairs or raise enquiries.

We have open lists for our housing for older people in the region and the waiting times are much shorter for re-housing.

For further information about housing for older people, please call us on 0800 917 0092 or 0300 123 3599.

Support within your community/neighbourhood

We have launched a new interactive map to help you find out about support services available in your area. Simply open up the map and type in the first half of your post code to find organisations local to you.

Parking permits for the Kingsmead and Morningside estates are no longer available at our local offices. Please visit our parking permits page for more information, including the different types of permits we offer and how to apply.
