Changes to the way we manage allocations and transfers

From April 2018 we will no longer be operating Wandle’s choice based lettings system known as MyMoves.

Wandle is a small housing association with just over 7,000 homes spread across nine boroughs. Like most housing associations, we have agreements in place that mean when a property becomes empty it is given to the relevant local authority to offer to applicants on their housing list. This limits the number of homes available to you through MyWandle.

In June 2017, we asked residents for their thoughts on the current allocations policy. You told us waiting times were too long, too few properties were advertised and the system is not user friendly. We have used this feedback to shape our new allocations policy and our approach to transfers.

We are still finalising these changes and will announce the full details in the coming months.

If you are currently registered for a transfer through MyWandle, you will soon receive a letter with full details of the changes, how they will affect you, and what steps you need to take.
