Your services

We provide you with a range of housing services.

Free fire risk check for council homes

Council tenants can benefit from a free fire risk check for their homes as part of a new initiative by Lambeth Council and the London Fire Brigade. These checks will identify any potential risks and how they can be overcome. The three year project will mean that all council-owned properties in the borough are fitted with free smoke alarms.

If you are one of our tenants and you would like to find out more about this scheme, contact the London Fire Brigade via their website

Recycling on your housing estate

It's easy to recycle if you live on a housing estate by using the green recycling bins. These are usually located where you put your household rubbish.

Communal services and repairs

We are responsible for repairs to communal areas of your housing estate including stairs, door entry systems, communal lighting, landings, communal windows, courtyards and sheds.

Modernising your home

We work closely with communities to provide good quality affordable housing and ensure that residents have the widest range of choice about how their estates should be improved.

Mutual exchange and Homeswapper

You can swap your home with another council or housing association tenant in Lambeth or anywhere else in the country, provided your landlord agrees.

Paying your rent

When you pay your rent on time you contribute to the continuously improving service we run for you and your neighbours. You can pay your rent in several easy and convenient ways.

Getting involved

We want to make it as easy as possible for residents in our housing to influence decisions that affect the housing service that they receive, both together and as individuals.

Transfer incentive scheme

We encourage and assist tenants living in properties with two or more bedrooms who are under-occupying the property to move to smaller homes that meet their needs.
