Changes to NHA options
From August 2014 NHA options is linking up with a great new service called Homes Direct. The website for Homes Direct is www.homesdirect.org.uk. If you are currently registered with NHA Options, there is nothing for you to do now. We will write to you during the week commencing Monday 21st July 2014 to explain how you will be able to start looking for a new home on Homes Direct.
All new applications made from the 14th July 2014 onwards need to be made at www.homesdirect.org.uk.
Homes Direct is a bigger and improved online choice-based lettings scheme. It will offer you more choice of homes within the borough and outside the borough of Newcastle under Lyme and will make it easier for you to apply for homes as you will be able to manage your application yourself. For example, with Homes Direct you will be able to register, update your details and make changes to your application straight away, without having to wait for us to check it and get back to you. Instead, you can get straight on with bidding for any suitable property you are interested in.
How to apply for a home
To bid for properties on the NHA Options site, you first need to register.
You can apply for a home by:
• Completing the online Application Form click here
• Calling the NHA team on 0345 850 9698
• In person at the new NHA office; 61 – 63 Lower Street, Newcastle.
Please provide as much information as possible as this will enable us to deal with your application more effectively.
If you have already submitted an application, call the NHA Team on 0345 850 9698 to notify us if your details have changed because failure to do so could invalidate your application.
Following registration you will be asked to provide documentation to support your application e.g. proof of ID etc. Failure to provide requested information could delay or invalidate your application.
