Homeless or facing eviction from a property
The Council does not have to give every homeless person a home but as a minimum it has to provide advice and assistance.
If you are homeless, facing eviction or repossession of your property, there are services that can help whether you are a housing association tenant, private tenant or homeowner. Complete the enhanced housing options tool as soon as possible to see what options are available to you. A meeting with a housing officer may be required following the completion of the tool. For financial assistance and advice in keeping your home, see Citizens Advice Bureau.
Homelessness advice, assistance and support
If you are experiencing housing difficulties, it is important that you seek advice and assistance as soon as possible. The London Borough of Bexley's Housing Service has developed a range of services to help you to stay in your existing home. Our key aim is to work with you to try and prevent homelessness enabling you to stay in your existing home. Where this is not possible, we will assist you in finding alternative accommodation to suit your family's housing need. In order to do this, it is important that you seek advice as early as possible, before your housing issue becomes a crisis.
Trained Housing Prevention and Assessment Officers are located at the Council Offices in Bexleyheath and can offer advice and assistance to help you find a solution to your problems.
We can offer advice directly or signpost you to organisations able to advise you on the following matters.
