Changes to Tyne and Wear Homes

The way you view and bid for homes is changing.

The Tyne and Wear Homes partnership, which has been a central point for social housing applications and advertising in the region since 2012, is going to end. Going forward, each local authority will aim to have their own website by winter 2022.

This will improve customers' experience, by giving partners the flexibility to adapt and develop their services, to support their housing applications and lettings processes on a local basis.

Next steps

There are no changes to our current services, so customers should continue to use the Tyne and Wear Homes website to apply for housing and manage their housing application.

Local authorities and their housing providers are working together to make sure future changes are introduced smoothly for customers. 

There is no need for customers to contact us. Local authorities and their housing providers will share further updates on future changes so customers are kept up to date. View some Frequently Asked Questions
